  1. Trees make aninteresting series of posts. I like plants that grow into trees, like the bougainvillea in your post — usually seen in the subtropics as a vine. Many shrubs that people force into landscape plants here by severe pruning make lovely trees when left to their own devices with minimal trimming. Thanks for sharing your favorites with us.. .

  2. What lovely trees! The cute one is Ravenala madagascariensis or the Traveller’s Tree. It is supposed to be called this because the leaves hold an emergency supply of water for thirsty travellers!
    Chloris.

  3. Spectacular selection of trees. They are all simply magnificent in their own right. You have seen some wonderful specimens.
