    While the idea of a 'field trip' is appealing... logistics might be difficult. In the meantime, a few facts:

    The genus Schefflera which has about 650 species

    Schefflera actinophylla Tree native to Queensland and the Northern Territory, Australia, with large shiny leaves each made up of leaflets arranged like an open hand, and small raspberrylike clusters of red flowers at the ends of branches. It is common as an indoor plant in many countries

    Schefflera umbelliferais a semi-deciduous tree of 6-20 m in height.

    Small, pale yellow flowers are borne in large, branched, terminal heads of up to 180 mm in diameter. The tree is very attractive when in flower, as the heads stand out well above the leaves. It flowers between January and May.(in South Africa) The fruits are dark red, small, about 3 mm in diameter and round, appearing from June to August.

    Not sure what Tim just said other than he'll be in Florida in 2008, but he sounded excited...

    Something about having Winney the Pooh's friend for dinner or something I think...

It's very hard to take a picture of something against a bright sky. But they are on my web page I'll post one here after I play with it so that you can see the red.

    Here is one I just took - It is approx 25' tall Not a perfect shot, but....

    No, not all. Some grow baby plants ( keiki ) and some just naturally divide.
