We have these beautiful flowering trees along the pathway which are now blooming so nicely and much longer, thanks to our good rainy season and cool early Spring, anyone knows its name? I took these photos yesterday, some last hurrah of rains and winds coming tomorrow, it will get a good shakedown:

I believe this is Rhaphiolepis sp/cultivar.

Maybe Rhaphiolepis montic majestic beauty.

I agree, it does look like Rhaphiolepis and beautiful specimens at that! https://garden.org/plants/sear...

tarev, we currently don't have any photos at the entry for Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis indica 'Majestic Beauty') so if this is your plant, I hope you will add a few pictures!

I wasn't aware of "Trees of Santa Cruz".. Thanks Silversurfer.. I'm familiar with the specimens he mentions in that article.. and was surprised to see that I know the author, as well. 'Majestic Beauty' is not found in nurseries around here lately. It's a shame because it's a lovely, useful small tree for a number of situations. The only downside is that they need to be staked as they get top heavy.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Thanks silversurfer and Lin! It is grown as a common area tree here in our little development. I am not sure I can put it specifically under the cultivar Majestic Beauty, it seems to also resemble Pink Lady as shown on our database.

I will just put its photo in the general entry for Raphiolepsis indica. Thanks a lot!
