Name That Tree

I asked via Twitter, and nobody seemed to have an answer for me. A week or two ago, I was downtown taking some pictures and just walking around to get some fresh air with a friend. And we stumbled across this beeeeautiful flowering tree. All I want to know is what kind of tree it is. Googling is getting me nowhere. Here. Look at its flowers. Whoever correctly identifies said tree gets a(n imaginary) high five. GO!


  1. Is it a tree with a trunk, and this is a shot of a branch? The flowers remind me of rhododendron, but the leaves are all wrong... and rhododendron are kind of bushy, not trees.

  2. No, it's an actual tree that stands about 7-8 feet tall. With a trunk, yes.
