    We moved from Seattle 8 years ago to Southeast Florida to discover a whole new group of trees, shrubs and flowers that I continue to learn about. One small flowering tree with thorns has me stumped. I’ve searched the Internet to find out what this is, but I can’t find it anywhere. This one blooms a couple of times a year and just started blooming this week. Can anyone help me identify this? It’s not a powderpuff tree, but it does have a bit of a puff on it.

    Neat! Would you be able to get photos of the leaves (and maybe branches / stem structure) -- that can help narrow it down to plant family if no one recognizes it from this specifically.
