Identifying Unknown Plants/identification
I'm not sure if this is your area of expertise. Please see the attached photo I took of a "tree" behind my house. It looks like a nut or fruit tree of some sort. Do you know what it is? My husband and I moved here, (Phoenix, Arizona) from the northeast and have never seen one of these trees. Thanks
The picture is blurry, so I need more to go on. Just from the shape of the branches and the color of the flower, I'd say it might be a crybaby tree (Erythrina), also called fireman's hat, because of the shape of the individual flowers. Does it have thorns anywhere? I can't even tell the shape of the leaf from the picture. Google a picture of a Crybaby tree and see if that's it. If not, try to send me a couple of clear pictures - a close-up of the leaf and flower, and a picture of the whole tree.
