Acacia Baileyana Purpurea My parents had a tree of this variety in the front yard of the last house they owned. My mother, in particular, loved it and I remember taking quite a few photos of her underneath it. After they died I found a local cemetery which had the same tree, and I had their ashes interred underneath it.
