PURPLE ORCHID TREE
A delightful tree for mild winter climates. Its foliage is similar to a Redbud, and the orchid-like flowers are highly prized. It is most-often grown in southern California, as it is rather tender. Those grown in the northern central valley usually do not flower as profusely. It may require regularly scheduled light top-trimming (but not necessarily shearing) of vigorous top shoots to maintain its height below 25'. Has fragrant flower. Native to India and China.
