Thanks Gene. I was thinking of some of the more 'ultra tropical' trees, such as Amherstia, Browneas, Saracas, etc...

Gene,

It would be nice to see what is out there.... In Australia, we are more limited on what we have. I am lucky to have what I have as most people don't even know they exist. You don't see them, unless you live in Cairns and go to the local plant sale there...

Peter

Some more going in this wet at my place. Watch this space...lol.

Regards, Ari :)

Peter- oh that's what you meant. Like I said what's considered exotic here is not the same every where else. Yes there were but I don't think that any of them were in flower else I woul have taken a photo. I keep that in mind the next time I go- which is probably next weekend.

Of course there were palms there too.

Sommieria elegans

Big and small Areca vestiaria looks like the maroon variety.

Areca Vestiarias aren't too common here

I thought that this was a nice looking Areca Vestiaria whose leaves have not started going pinnate yet but when the sales girl said that "she had no price for it" I suspect that this may be a different palm altogether.

THe leaves are all simple and undivided. That largest leaf is about 2 feet across already.

Can anyone ID?

lets just finish off the photos we took

Dwarf Ylang Ylang tree. The flowers of these don't have as much scent as the full sized variety though.

Another variegated tree. Its a Kapok tree I think. The shape of the leaves are perfect for displaying the very nice varigation pattern.

They Kind of cheate though. They grafted variegated branches to a sizable trunk. This ay they get to keep the mother plant and probably charge a bit more for the trunked seedling

Miracle fruit trees. If you've read the book " The Fruit Hunters" the berries of this tree makes the you taste sour things as sweet.

I haven't tried it myself.
