Okay, I've got to go back out into the cold now.

Christopher..? A Hawaiian native Metrosideros, or pseudo-native, I believe.

The sun is giving sharp contrasts today.

Maybe too sharp.

Maybe you think those pictures should go in this order...?

Christopher C. in Hawaii said...

It could pass for a native Hawaiian Metrosideros and may be since there are shrub forms here that are the same species as the tree. I certainly wouldn't know for sure. It could be from New Zealand or any number of other places in Polynesia.

Heh, heh I wish I could get some.

A trip to the Bot Garden is always welcome.
