The Beauty of Tereticornis

We have various tereticornis in all stages of growth around the property – seedlings, immature, mature and tallest of them all, an amazing ‘Granddaddy Tereticornis’.

The age of the tree can only be wondered about given the girth of its trunk.

The tereticornis has distinctive long, thin, limp grey-green leaves that create a look of minimal exertion in the shimmering heat.

From a distance the branches appear as grey-white arms reaching to the sky…

 but up close the bark on the trunk can be like an artist’s palette of  greys, browns, whites, creams and greens.
