The umbrella tree

A couple of snaps of the ‘umbrella tree’ near our house.

I can see where the tree got its name from – its flowers, which do resemble the spokes of an umbrella.

By the way, ‘umbrella tree’ is just the popular name of this tree, as is ‘octopus tree’. The scientific name of the tree is Schefflera Actinophylla. I’ll stick to ‘umbrella tree’, though, thank you very much! 🙂

  1. TGND,

    That’s a beautiful one ! Also, you remember your post on the “bride’s plait”. I saw it when we went on a roadtrip to Kuantan in Malaysia and i was like “Hey, TGND had posted this, TGND had posted this” and my better half was like “whoa slow down, who? which girl stays next to our house?” lol.
    I even took many pictures of it to post and show it to you. such a beautiful flower no?
