I wondered if anyone could tell me the name of this tree in our backyard. It loses most of its leaves in winter, has a delightful pink waxy flower in summer. I just can't find it anywhere on my own. Many thanks for any help. We are in Childers, Queensland

Only a guess but try maple-leaf Abutilon and go through the varieties.

I spent ages looking at this early this morning and came to the same conclusion....a close up of the flower would help.

Thank you both for your suggestions. I had a look at the Abutilon but that isn't it. I realise the photos are too unclear so perhaps I should wait until the tree flowers again this year, that photo was from a previous year and I couldn't find a better one. I truly appreciate your time and effort with this question, many thanks. Dianne
