Dear all would appreciate it if u could identify the tree from the photos attached. Doubt it is a native maltese wild plant.

Much appreciated.

It is definitely an ornamental. I cannot figure it out. Will try using Profs book.

RB is also good in ornamentals, if he is around in the forum...

Brian, you can give a bit more info like:

Was it in a pot, privat garden, park, or elsewhere?
What was the height of tree (more or less)?
When the photo was taken.

I cannot figure out either and 99.9% it is an ornamental from tropic parts of the world (the latter just a guess!)

I found the tree in a pot in the Flower Power car park recently. It is around 2.5 high. Definitely an ornamental but no idea which one. can get you more photos if necessary.

Hi everybody,

my guess is Brachychiton acerifolius.

http://www.hear.org/starr/images/image/ ... 0&o=plants

According to H.C.Weber: "... a total of about 50 speciemes were planted for the first time in Malta (e.g. St.Julians).
