    Unidentified Florida Tree

    I have passed by this unassuming tree, outside my apartment building in Boca Raton, many times without paying it much mind. Untill one day I found an interesting flower on the ground near it. After that I just had to know what kind of tree it was. I have scoured the internet and searched in several databases. I don't even know if the tree is native (doubful) or a common landscping tree. All I know is I can't find anything that looks like it, I havn't even found other trees in the area.

    From what I can tell it was alternating, simple leaves with an entire margin. It has very dark bark, save on some of the younger branches in which the color is a smother grey. The flower appears black with 5 petals and sepals. The sepals are many times the size of the petals and no stamen are visible. Below is a picture I put together with closeups of the bark, branches, leaves and flowers. Sorry if they are a bit dark and fuzzy, the light was not in my favor and my camera is not the best.



    I'd really like to know what tree this is, thanks in advance!

    I would suggest you send leaves and fruit samples to the local county extension office for identification. They should have a good grasp of which sorts of trees grow in their vicinity. You can find the address in the blue pages of the phone book.

    Thanks for the response. I think I will do that whenever I get the chance. But it will be more difficult now that I have moved.
