Parrots Beak Shrub Ching-chai (gmelina philippensis)

Other-worldly, long, tubular, overlapping racemes hang like pendants and end in pointy, beak shaped lemon-yellow flowers. The trumpet shaped flowers wait for pollination then develop into small, yellow non-edible fruit. Grown mainly for its decorative chain like flower pendants this small tree only reaches about 15 feet at full size and is covered in ivy like, deep green leaves. Nothing about this plant is normal and even the bark is unusual. Often used for bonsai gardening this is an easy to grow plant for the urban garden collection or small patio in a city setting.
