I’m not sure where this tree comes from but it does bear a resemblance to native Australian plants – and indeed may be one as there are a few in surrounding gardens. This particular spreading tree is around 6 foot tall and is growing in the Coffs Harbour Botanical Gardens. The common name is Powderpuff. Each flower is around 3inches in diameter and the ‘petals’ are so fine they become transparent on the end unless you look very closely in the right light and then you can see the little stamens.
