John,

interesting shape. I did a google on Grasiow, but nothing shows up.
Do you by any chance have the latin name for the tree / shrub ?
Thanks in advance.

John,

to make life easy for yourself. Most countries store the latin names of trees found locally, in their herbarium or botanical gardens. This is how I keep track of all the seedlings I dig out of the public drains or sometimes roadsides. Normally to identify a tree/shrub flowers are needed.
[ when I say drains, I mean the ones dug by tractors and are left to bush, not the concreted ones.]

If you don't have the time, please just forget my request. I tend to be more interested in the mature
shapes of trees, as I find those domes, negative spaces [ space for birds to fly through ] and branching really fascinating. Especially if the tree has existed on it's own, without competition.
We have for a small island, miles of flat land about 9 feet above sea level and quite a few trees to look at.

Since the Sageretia, takes so long to trunk thicken, I started looking at using them to represent the local edible guava, and the valley immortelles. Neither gets really heavy trunks, but the tops are particularly elegant.

Anyhow, I just like trees.
Stay Well.
