Well, I finally got my cigar tree blossoms pictures.
Blooms late June, early July, evidently.
The blossoms are beautiful and interestingly shaped, come in clumps, and smell wonderful.
White, with purple and gold.
Here's a photo of the leaves, blossoms, and last year's "string beans" fruit which is what captured my attention originally when I saw the trees. Last year's, so brown in color, but normally green when new.
The full tree was in a spot that is difficult to capture on camera, but here is the best I could get. Not a very big tree.
I love this tree.
