Good spot, what a cool tree!

Great, isn't it?

And I bet you'll always remember that one, and be able to ID it at 50 paces for evermore!

There's nothing else with quite that spindly, regular silhouette, either.

Apparently it's quite rare for them to flower and produce fruit, but when they do, they are easy to propagate, so keep an eye on it!
