I wasn’t sure what this following tree was. It had the leaves and characteristics of the mimosa tree but the pods were huge and the flowers more like orchids than purple puffs.
Had to do some research and now I think it’s a Royal Poinciana which is from the mimosa family.
I had a mimosa tree at another house in Florida and it’s a very DIRTY tree. The flowers are pretty but it leaves ugly small brown pods on the ground.
A beautiful spot for a wedding!
