Canopy of Brazilian Ferntree, Schizolobium parahybum. In Brazil and Mexico it is known as
Bacarubu or Guapuruva. I planted this tree in 1989 as a tiny seedling. It has now a massive trunk and is very high. In spring it has yellow flowers. It is deciduous in wintertime.

Cats Whiskers,Orthosiphon aristatus (Java Tea, Kumis, Kutjing) is said to have medicinal uses.
