Tree Identification

Hi, my name is Martha and I am new to the forum. Is there anyone out there who might be able to identify this tree for me? I have also attached a pic of the blossoms close up... It is quite beautiful but I do't know what it is. Thank you and I look forward to learning from this forum.

Re: Tree Identification

I tell you what. That search by images is amazing.
But I can't figure out why it is called a golden dew drop.

Re: Tree Identification

Thanks for the ID; it does look like you got it. But can you explain "that search by images" more please? How do you do that?

Re: Tree Identification

Basically you use Bing or Google and at the home page you can select images at the top and search them by what you want to find. It doesn't always work but you can at least see a pic and hopefully it will have a link to the original source of the pic.

Re: Tree Identification

I use google images all the time, but what did you search by to find OP's purple flowered tree?

Re: Tree Identification

I uploaded a copy of the picture onto Google images and looked at all of the images that came up until I found the right one.
