Ornamental ID Oct08 - 3

Post by MWP admin » Sun Oct 26, 2008 12:23 pm

A rather high tree (around the 10m mark) where I could not even reach the lower branches. Leaves and fruit photos available, but not the flower which I assume that it blooms in Spring (from the empty fruit capsules seen in October)

The leaves and fruit have a particular shape so it may be easy for the ornamental freaks!

Did not spot it on Webers Ornamenta book, perhaps only the flowers are shown there.
