I love Wisteria, had one in the yard but it never bloomed :( so it was replaced by Bayberry which, not unlike mint, is now all over the place but hasn't gotten any berries. :(
Guess it takes both a male and a female in proximity to pollinate.
How does one tell the gender of a plant? By dangly bits or what?
If so, dunno what that says about Wisteria and some other trees/plants/bushes...wait, not bushes.
Yes, I love trees and plants. Actually I love just about everything in nature, the good, the bad and the poisonous :)
Epiphytical growing trees are not unusual, but they normally reach a small size and have a short lifespan, as there is normally not enough humus and space available where they grow.
Large Epiphytes like this one require the "upper tree" have a root connection to the ground, for example by growing down through a hollow trunk. A similar "double tree", consisting of a peach and a spruce in the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.'
I think what I like most about nature is it's determination to survive against all odds. It never gives up.
