Rare tree blooms after 30 years

2 posts in this topic

A tree described as "rare in cultivation and extremely shy to flower" has bloomed for the first time in its 30-year history in Cambridge.

The Emmenopterys henryi at Cambridge University Botanic Garden is one of only five to have flowered since they were introduced in Britain in 1907.

Dr Tim Upson, acting director, said: "It's a super tree and to see a specimen in flower is extremely rare.

"It could be a once-in-a-lifetime, once-in-a-generation opportunity."

He said he hoped the tree would continue to bloom "for another two weeks or so".
