Note the fig-shaped buds.

I had to cheat in order to get a good frontal shot since the trees are so tall and the blossoms face upwards.

  1. The petal shape is pretty unique, and the leaves look similar to an avacado with a matte finish.
    Did you smell the petals? Can you describe their odor?
    Also, did you get a shot of the trunk? Any distinguishing features that you noted about the bark?
