Tree buds and sets leaves later than any tree I’ve seen. Has a round top growing habit. Mid-June to early July clusters of white flowers bloom in cone shape on ends of limbs. The tree shown has been cut severely trimmed from the bottom. The leaves and bark give off a profusely nasty odor. Flowers attract butterflies. I call them invasive (being kind) because they spread by roots. They remind me of a Paulowinia tree, but the shoots have woody stems from seedlings.

    Not seeing the flowers. I’m guessing this might be harlequin glorybower (Clerodendrum trichotomum). Best wishes!
