True to form, I just discovered a new flower in my landscape/orchard. The tree is barely 7' tall, and produced about 30 lbs of baseball sized persimmons last season. I don't think there will be quite as many this year due to a late frost.
Anyway, I thought some of you may have never seen this tree in bloom, so I've got a picture for you. The actual flower is mostly hidden by a green cap (the same color as the leaves), which stays with the fruit until it is havested.
But if you look carefully, at the right time, you can see the little yellow flower hidden under the cover of leaves and the green cap. This little flower is only about the size of the tip of my finger. The thing that impressed me is the color, one of the few that I can see well. Enjoy:
