white beech tree

This is the tree that Beechmont was named after ..  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmelina_leichhardtii  They are rare and hard to germinate the lovely purple skin does not give colour … but the leaf is very shapely.  When we discovered a huge tree in the Numinbah Valley, I was very excited as it meant that I would get to try the leaf at long last and I will pass the seed onto a local guy who is a wiz at propagation.
