Arki's Blooming Bagras!

The filamentous flowers of bagras
The bagras blooms are a bee favorite
Small but already blooming
Quick Post: I got another bloomer surprise! Last year the UP Arch faculty planted 4 feet seedlings of the native bagras or Eucalyptus deglupta in between Bulidings 1 and 2.  This year some of the seedlings have grown almost person height. One has already exhibited the multicolor bark at only a few inches trunk diameter. The same plant is now heavily burdened with flower.  Just goes to show that good old bagras is reliable for urban greening.

Oh how long will the fruits mature! I thought bagras will be already very tall before it fruits. (pwede humingi ng konti seeds pag pwede na)
