Giant flowering tree near the Hall of Champions

This giant horticultural delight, an interesting find during our Sunday walk in Balboa Park, is located near the Hall of Champions.   The blooms are cataloupe size.   Anyone know what it is called?




  1. I don’t know what it’s called Walker, but beautiful it is. I like the walk through Balboa Park.

  2. Big as cantaloupes? I wouldn’t get too close, it’s liable to fall off and knock you out.

  3. Wow! Looks like those Christmas light ornaments people hang from their trees in SD. But real! And pink! I love it!

  6. This tree is Dombeya wallichii, or a tropical hydrangea. it is my favorite flower and smells like birthday cake!
