    This tree is in my neighbor's yard in Punta Gorda (southwest) Florida. He doesn't know what it is since it was there when he bought the house. Can anyone identify it?

    Hi!

    Clerodendrum quadriloculare

    (P.S.: it is good to see some beautiful flowers, because here in Hungary I can see only snow now... :(((

    Too bad this wonderful clerodendrum last out-7grade Celsius (20F). In Romania only go clerodendrum tricothomum, like!
    P.S. and in Romania snow,snow...and the freezing cold mind!

    If harlequin glorybower survives there Cashmere bouquet might also be possible.

    I never saw these before last week when I was in the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area and saw lots of them. They all looked excellent - they're profuse bloomers and very showy. I thought maybe a little fragrant, but not nearly as fragrant as the Clerodendrum tricothomum.

    Finally one I could have identified, but I'm several days late!
    Hapylica, I've been reading about the unusual cold weather all over Europe, with at least a few more weeks of it predicted.
