Flowering tree July 2010


I don't know what this tree is called, but it is unusual in that it blooms in mid-Summer, unlike all the other flowering trees tht bloom in the Spring. I took the picture with my iPhone from my car window. That's why it's not so great. I was hoping someone would tell me what it was. Tat--you know about such things!

Could be crape myrtle, but I'm not sure.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagerstroemia
My tree knowledge is very, very limited.

Looks spectacular, though.

I think it's Crape Myrtle.

It's my FAVORITE!

I'm going to call it crape myrtle. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

That appears to be a red Camellia japonica.
