I have just seen a tree that has gown up from the root ball of an imported tree fern and cannot find out what it is in books or on the web.
I has grown to a height of about 9feet in quite a short time and in character reminds me of an eucalyptus.Smooth bark with a rather atractive reddish brown vertical lines on a lighter background,sorry no photo
The photo of the leaves shows a simple leaf about 12cm long with a tiny Pinnate leaf at the base. On the tree there is a mixture of simple and pinnate leaves .
As it comes from the new world am I right in thinking it is some sort of eucalyptus?
