Which Tree For Me?


I have narrowed it down to one of these trees.

The yellow,



the purple,



or the orangie-red????


This last tree is called an african tulip tree.
I have wanted one of these for years,
but they get huge.

Which tree do you like?

  1. I love the purple one but can never find out the name,
    there are a couple of boulevards here with a short stretch of them and they are very pretty....that tulip tree is gorgeous never ever have seen one!

  2. The purple jacaranda is just beautiful and one of my favourite trees and if it is placed next to a red poinciana (which has the same growth patter and is not unlike the tulip tree) you could be living in Brisbane!!!!!xoxo

  4. I'll have them all but the second, the Jacaranda, is one I've always loved. Unfortunately, the climate for it is too cool where I live! Lovely post, lovely colour!

  6. it is looking like the jacaranda.

  8. what??!!! you can't have all 3?..
    gorgeous trees, what are their soil, sun, moisture requirements? are they susceptible to insects or disease? do they need pruning or are they messy and drop large leaves, branches, seed pods, etc? just some thoughts...I'd pick the one that requires the least amount of maintenance, personally...

  10. Renee,

    Love all three why limit thee? You can grow them in big mobile planter/pots from seeds. Look into a drawf versions of these trees. My favorite is the Jacaranda they love the heat.

  12. Love all of them. I'd plant all of them. Ha! Nature never clashes.

    But if you have to choose, I'd go with the lavendar. So softly beautiful in the bright Florida sun.

  17. They're all so beautiful. If I had to pick one, it would be the jacaranda.

    In this Florida Highwayman painting by Sam Newton, the red, the yellow and the purple trees are all together:
