Young Chinadoll tree. (Radermachera sinica (Asian Bell))

They get to be large tree's here eventually if you let them. Most seem to get pruned back. Anyway's saw this one that had a particularly nice layered look to it.

Lighting wasn't best. But,I was there and it give people the overl look.
These Penny when they flower? The blooms resemble Brugmansia/Datura's. Scented also.

For such a tropical tree, it sure grows very well up there. I know where there's many large china doll trees in the SF Bay Area. I know they grow very large there, too. I know where there used to be one that was almost 50' (15 m) tall in San Lorenzo off the 880 Freeway. I think it was cut down, though.

I love the fragrant flowers on this tree, also.

There is one in Hayward over 40' with a real tree trunk girth to go with it. I posted that on Dave's Garden a few years ago.
I should do a update for GOY.

I've seen many large ones growing in the Bay Area with big trunks. They tend to have pretty large trunks. The largest one I've ever seen was growing in Hilo, HI. I estimated it to be around 80 ft tall.

They grow really well and large in coastal California; however, in the wet tropics it becomes a monster! :>))

So it loves the moister I am surprised it grows so well with the salt in the sea air

It loves moisture. It's surprising this tropical tree grows so well here.

Yes it is with the dry heat but if its by the coast it would get its moisture from the ocean.

It tolerates dry air very well. It loves heat and sun, also.
