This golden bronze or orange yellow color tree is Silky oak; the scientific name is Grevillea robusta. The bright outstanding color above the house attracted my attention, while I was on my way home after showing property yesterday.
The Silky oak tree is from Australia and is not related to an oak tree, also not usually classified as a flowering tree. Its wood grain is similar to oak, and is used in making furniture and paneling.
It is a fast growing tree in warm temperatures; it will reach 80 to 100 feet in height. Its leave will drop in the colder months and sometimes become leafless. The beautiful and colorful flowers form an interesting brush shape. May be an ideal garden tree.
