OK--so this is a wierd question...but I was at Lego Land in San Diego CA. this past summer and saw a tree that I must have for my yard! It's branches were broad and unbrella like, not too dense. The leaves were dark green and in the heat of August, it had the most amazing cluster blooms of flaming orangish-red. If you can give me any direction as to the name and where I might purchase one...I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thank you.

There are several trees that might match your description and I don't know for sure which tree is planted at Legoland, but here's a link to a photo of a Brownea.

The shape seems right and the flower clusters are an orangish-red. Hope this is the tree in question!
