some cool trees- U of AZ campus

Postby Eric 9b » Wed Aug 20, 2008 12:04 pm

I was in Arizona recently on vacation and visited the U of AZ campus in Tucson. Lots of cool trees planted and many are labeled. Here is a few;

Albizia sinaloensis- I got seed from this tree 2 years ago. They germinated quickly but the seedlings were very slow until a couple months ago and now seem to have "woken up"

Decidedly quite a collection there. Isn't there a Delonix regia there as well?
