Cannonball tree flowers

Cannonball tree flowers

Cannonball treeI’ve posted a photo of a cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis) before, here. That one focused on the cannonballs that give the tree its name. On this occasion I was taken by the flowers which can vary in color from pink to deep red. These flowers were on the pink end of the scale. The flowers are also fragrant, especially in the early morning and evening.

The flowers grow directly off the tree trunk and all the way up, but it takes a closer look to really appreciate how beautiful they are.
