Thanks! :>)

This sausage tree produces lots of pods.

You'll be happy to know this tree is being offered a lot more in nurseries here now. It used to only be grown as an oddity. I should start seeing a whole lot more in the landscape.

That's good news :o)))

Yes, it is. People have to be very careful where they plant this tree, though. It can cause a lot of damage if it's planted around where cars are parked.

Do you mean damage to cars when the pods fall down ?

Oooh ,what a strange looking tree!

Terratoonie:

Yes, damage to cars when the pods fall on them. The pods can be quite heavy because they're so dense.

Yes, it can appear strange to people who don't live in the tropics/subtropics where this tree grows. :>)
