Jacaranda - Jacaranda mimosifolia
I love it because of the magnificence of the flowers when in bloom. The purple is so startling and eye-catching. The foliage is very attractive until if falls during the winter season.
Live Oak - Quercus virginiana
Live oaks are pleasant to view in the landscape of Southern California. They have beautiful structure and an admirable canopy of leaves.
African Tulip Tree - Spathodea campanulata
African Tulip Tree. Again, I love this tree for the huge flower clusters that it bears. There is a red-orange flowered one and a golden-yellow one.
