The Ultimate, Unsung, Unique Umbrella Tree – Bumpershootus umbrelli.

umbrellatree

Notice that this tree is in the middle of its blooming cycle with an unopened bud, an umbrella in full bloom and one that is past its prime and ready to fall from the tree.

These trees usually bloom in the wetter times of the year with spring and autumn being the heights of its season.  At their peak, the flowers from this tree can be dried and used for many years.

If you can find a seed to this rare tree, you, too, can grow it and harvest your own umbrellas.
