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.

What an odd looking tree. They don't grow in Hawaii, that's for sure.

Dragon tree?? Never heard of it. It looks very nice. :)

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.

Very unique and exciting. I've not seen one. The branches look like legs holding up the tree leaves. Very cool shots. Thanks for sharing these photos and information.

What a great tree. I don't think I've ever seen one of those.

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.

This sure is amazing tree, it does look more like a plant than a tree.
