Chinese flame trees bring fall color to Elysian Heights


Fall arrives in Elysian Heights

ELYSIAN HEIGHTS — You know autumn has arrived when the Chinese flame trees on the north end of Echo Park Avenue become filled with salmon-colored seed pods.  While the trees put on a colorful show, some folks are not thrilled when those papery pods fall to the ground, spreading seeds and creating the potential for a new Chinese Flame forest.

  1. beautiful photos. Who took them? I’ve lived in Echo Park a long time and I’m just noticing these blooms. Where the trees blooming 10 years ago?
