|I recently moved and the previous occupants loved to garden. One bush/tree that I have come to really enjoy is beside our patio, but I haven't been able to confirm the name. I was told that it was a Popcorn tree/bush but in reading the description you gave to an earlier question it doesn't quite fit. |
This particular "bush" was cut down to ground level in January. It is now June and it is over 6 feet tall. The leaves look like giant maple leaves (5 points but larger than even my husband's palm). The blooms come from pods and when the first "pop" open the 3 inch bloom is white. As it ages (generally over a 12 hour period) it turn a bright hot pink (fuschia) color.
I would love to know what this plant is called. We'll be moving to another duty station is this is one plant I'd like to have again. Is this a type of Popcorn bush/tree? If not what is it?
