I recently saw a flowering tree beside a City street. It appears to be small to medium in size, accent size, with flowers hanging down that look like small bunches of grapes. The flowers are a bright reddish purple (kind of purplish fushia). It has been flowering for the past month and still blooming. Can you tell me the name of this tree???

I'm afraid the tree could be any one of a hundred different varieties and probably the best way for you to positively identify it is to visit local nurseries and look for the same tree. In the meantime, here are a few possibilities:
Giant Red Ixora (Ixora chinensis) with large clusters of small red flowers; Okame Cherry, an upright oval-growing tree, deep green leaves, pink drooping flower clusters; Pink Princess (euodia elleryana), an unusual regal-looking tree possessing great beauty. It has very lustrous bright green leaves. Produces an abundance of pink-red flowers that stay on the branches for many weeks.

Best wishes in your search!
