Subject: RE: BS: What tree is this, please?
I posted pictures in the links, Bobert, but it looks like you won't be able to see them right now.
Flowers have five petals and a trumpet shaped center part. The petals are whitish with a lavender/purplish tinge around the edges. The center part is deep purple. The reproductive bits are yellow. The petals are longer than they are wide, and the middle part extends a quarter to a half inch from the petals (I think. I don't have the flowers in the house with me, so I'm going by the pictures and memory).
The leaf is divided with five parts, each divided into five or more leaflets (I think).
I don't know about the bark (it's dark outside right now). But I think it might be a medium to light gray, and relatively smooth, but not shiny.
