Cassia bakeriana

With a life time of gardening every day is Earth Day to me. I passed this tree for a week or two just enjoying the beauty. I was most surprised that the tree appeared untouched by hurricanes. When it matures it will be more dense. The common name is dwarf apple blossom tree, Look at the closeup, you will see the beauty of the flower and notice that the stamen is very long. The flowers last longer apple bloom.
