    Tree of the month (December 2018)

    The Planchonella obovata, previously known as Pouteria obovata, is an evergreen tree commonly found along sandy or rocky shores, coastal cliffs and Singapore’s streetscape. It is a hardy tree tolerant of salt-spray and urban pollution, and looks best in full sun. Its species epithet ‘obovata’ calls your attention to its leaves, as ‘obovata’ means ‘inversely ovate’ or ‘egg-shaped’ in Latin. Move in closer to touch the leaves – you will notice that they are thinly leathery and dark glossy green above, but densely hairy and coppery-golden below.

    • Species:Syzgium grande
    • Common Name:Jambu Laut
    • Location:Boon Lay Drive

    The "Tree of the Month" will be awarded to the tree which has received the most number of virtual hugs over the previous month.

Thought to bloom after a sudden drop in air temperature, the attractive flowers of the Golden Penda make it a popular ornamental tree in Singapore and also an excellent source of nectar for bees, butterflies and nectar-feeding birds like sunbirds.

    When the rains return after a long period of dry weather, look out for the blooms of the Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia rosea). The common name of this South American species highlights its showy, trumpet-shaped flowers that come in soft shades of pink and white. A popular plant found along Singapore’s streets and parks, the visual spectacle of mass blooming events are often likened to the Spring flowering of Sakuras.

    There once stood a Sepetir tree (Sindora wallichii) in Changi, nicknamed the “Changi Tree”, that was so tall that sailors used it as a landmark for over 100 years! This tree was said to measure about 76 metres in height, but sadly, it was deliberately felled in 1942 as it was used as an artillery landmark for the invading Japanese army during World War II.

    Have you heard of the Handkerchief tree (Maniltoa browneoides)? This common roadside tree in Singapore is named after its prominent flushes of young leaves, which resemble soft white handkerchiefs hanging from the tree! However, these “handkerchiefs” do not last for long. Within a few days, they start to turn green and eventually harden into mature leaves.
