My glorybower tree, Clerodendrum trichotomum, has been flowering like mad all summer and I notice that it’s still going. I didn’t get photos yesterday and it’s pouring rain right now so instead I’ll show yesterday’s shots of my loquat, Eriobotrya japonica.
Most of the flowers aren’t open yet.
Not super impressive, but I’m excited to see the first blooms on my tree.
This tree was a Craigslist acquisition in March. It protested the move by dropping most of its leaves and looking pretty pathetic all spring, but gradually sprouted new leaves over the summer.
The overall picture of this tree is still pretty sad, but it will fill out over time.
I loved the mottled bark of the serviceberry, the rosaceous leaves, and delicate flower clusters, but I got frustrated dealing with rust symptoms and also wanted an evergreen screening tree for this corner.
Take a peek at more Bloom Day flowers on May Dreams Gardens.
