東方烏檀 pincushion tree [快影 snap]

東方烏檀開花,猶如小仙女的魔術棒尖,且散發香氣。據澳洲熱帶植物網站 (此樹屬澳洲原生品種),「波波」是花萼管融合而的球形花頭。

this handsome tree surprises me with these cute flower heads. according to the australian tropical rainforest plants website it is the calyx tubes fused to one another to form these perfectly spherical heads of flowers.
