Cassowary seen crossing the ride while driving to Cape TribulationBotanical Name: Barringtonia calyptrata

This is a beautiful tree with large glossy leaves and stunning pendulous flowers. The flowers produce large quantities of nectar which attract lots of wildlife. Cassowary love feeding on the large fruits when in season. Also called the mango pine, this deciduous or semi-deciduous tree is found in New Guinea and Australia chiefly in coastal areas. The glossy leaves tend to be whorled at the ends of the branches, The fragrant white flowers are in long pendulous spikes and appear just prior to the new growth flush.

Ever since I began growing tropical trees, I have wanted to make the Cassowary Pine an addition. I'm going to try and maintain its size as much as I can and use it more as an ornimental. I'll see how it goes. I have been doing a similar thing with a Jacaranda; so I'll be doing the same thing with this beautiful tree. 

Planted: 2016

Sun/Shade: Low Sun
