I think it's correctly ID'd.

DoomsDave: Thanks.  Here's a somewhat better image of a single flower...

And this is what my few B. blakeana blooms look like this year in high temps, low humidity and full sun. The tree has been outdoors, in the ground, for a few years now.

UPDATE: I just noticed a big, fat seed pod forming on what I've grown for years as "B. blakeana" (which is always described as sterile). :angry: So what I have is probably just B. variegata. I ordered a small, rooted cutting of B. blakeana to start over.
