Schefflera pueckleri - Mallet Tree, Tupidanthus (Schefflera pueckleri - Mallet Tree)

This tree is as common as Schefflera actinophylla; however, it doesn't grow quite as tall. It's usually much more lush, though. Photo taken Feb. 28, 2013 at Paradise Point Resort, San Diego, CA.

Yes, definitely!

I do know some plants/trees look very unusual or strange to you, because they don't grow there.

Yes, I do like to share my photos. I know many people on GoY live in colder climates and can't grow many of the plants/trees which grow outside in ground here in San Diego.
