Crape Myrtle?

Almost positive it is a guava--probably pineapple guava, which has tiny fruits. The bark is VERY telling ! They are wonderful trees, and good for wildlife too!

It looks a little like a Jaboticaba tree

Looks like the bark of a crepe myrtle. Can you send a photo of the leaves?

Thanks for the ideas. Yes, I think it may be a crepe myrtle, but I'll get a closer shot of the leaves the next time I'm out in Coral Springs then post it here.

Thanks again.

I don't think that is a crepe myrtle. They aren't usually that lush in S Florida this time of the year.

Could it be Simpson's Stopper? :o)

Trini I wanted to tell you the climbing oleander is blooming beautifully this year. :o)

I vote for guava also. Cattley guava.
