I think I can. Yes, yes. That's the tree outside your workplace.
Glad to be of help.

That looks real close. I'll have to wait till spring to see the leaves.

My parents are up from Punta Gorda visiting and Mom seems to think its an Orchid Tree. She isn't positive, but that is her gut feeling.

The flowers on the orchid trees I looked up do not have the same cone shape - but they are the same color.

If you really want to know, just take the picture to your local nursery. They should be able to tell you what it is.

I'm going to vote for some sort of Hibiscus... ...although I don't know diddly about trees. The flowers remind me of a hibiscus plant I once had... that I killed.

I'm actually here just for the tree ID starting with this one that brought me when I searched for tree ID forums. Although I've never actually seen one it is probably a black poui, Jacaranda mimosifolia D. Don, which is the most common cultivated species in the genus. The foxglove like flower shape (and lack of a terminal bud because the end of the twig dies each year thus resulting in the tree forking) got me close since princess tree, Paulownia tomentosa (Thunb.) Siebold & Zucc. ex Steud., is similar. From there I searched for just trees at increasingly higher classification levels (getting up to order) until I found it at; http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=JAMI, where it is shown to be introduced (from South America according to Wikipedia) and thus present near where indicated.
