Not everyone is a fan of fall color around the Silver Lake Reservoir

Sandy Driscoll was taking photo of a tree on the west side of the Silver Lake Reservoir that was bursting with color when a woman in her car pulled up and issued a warning:

“Don’t even think about planting one of those … they’re so messy.”  I commented on how beautiful it was, and asked her what kind of tree it was.   “It’s a pain in the ass!” she replied, and she drove off.

What kind of tree is it? Looks to be a Chinese Flame Tree, which can be colorful but have also been the subject of  blog posts titled “Worst Tree I Have Ever Planted.”
