I have posted many photos of the powder puff flower. This year it has done extraordinary things which we have never seen before. It has never had seed pods and we have discussed why not. Now we believe it is because we did not let it mature as long. Every other year Bob hacks it down to four feet. But this year the last time he hacked it down was 2009.
The tree is a monster and at times has had up to 200 blooms on it this year. We have not touched it and these dead looking things are different stages of the flowers as they go from bright red to dark and dreary,
