Hi,

I was out and about the other week and saw a tree in the front garden of a house up the road. It is some freak of nature as it has purple broom flowers and also yellow laburnum flowers on the same branches. It is mainly a laburnum but about 40% of the flowers seemed to be that of a broom?

weird,

anyone ever see something similar?

I think I remember seeing a judas tree and a laburnum all on the one tree before in the botanic gardens,

Best,

Sa

Ah yes +Laburnocytisus adamii.
You must not have walked with Donal Synott when you were in the Bots maybe too much time in the Adamson.

Haha, yeah that's the very one, man that brings it back. I finished around 2000, I think it was Donald alright. Was he the director?
