Nature Notes


I believe this very interesting specimen is called a Dragon Tree. You can find out about it if you click here.

In the photo below I am standing next to the trunk looking up towards its branches.

  10. That is truly an unusual tree. I wonder why the Greeks named it a dragon. Since it's a succulent, maybe it would do well in Hawaii.

  15. Wow, that is amazing. I was thinking it looked a bit like our Joshua Trees here in SoCal and then I saw from you link that it is a "suculant". Thanks for sharing this interesting item.
