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! 🙂
