Giraffe Tree


I think this might be a crepe myrtle tree but I don't know, and it reminds me of a giraffe, so I call it a giraffe tree. A horticulturalist I am not.

Yes, of course! That's the common name for giraffis neckitus, a subtropical species which originated in east Africa. ;-)

More creative to name them yourself. Maybe I'll try that with butterflies this year.

Interesting name, Lowell,
we call this here "red deer tree" :)

Sharon Anck said...

That seems a perfect name for this tree. I see the resemblance.
