Hi Kayes
Very nice pic of the Couroupita guianensis, commonly known as Cannonball Tree which is a native of South America. It may not be obvious in this pic but the pinkish-red flowers grow directly from the trunk near the base of the crown. The flowers are strongly scented in the evening. They are followed by large globular fruits that do indeed resemble cannonballs!

hi Blue Grass, thank you for telling us about the Cannonball tree. Here's a pic of the cannonball fruit which does indeed look like an old cannonball found at Fort Cornwallis, complete with rust Smile
