I recently went the to Eden project and these flowers were just on the floor of the path. I couldn't see what they fell from.
Does anyone know the name of the plant that produces them?

It looks like Albizia julibrissin or something close. Yours looks darker at the base. The Eden Project lists Albizia saman.
