MAP LOCATION: 119
To quote the 1987 survey of the Parque de Malaga….
“After the….monument, we find a deciduous tree which flowers very irregularly, a species of the Sterculiaceae family, still unclassified, and very rare in Malaga gardens.”
Seen here, May 2011, in flower and labelled as Sterculia coccinea. A spindly shrub. Large leaves spirally arranged; pendant white flowers covered in fine hairs and then followed by an impressive orange seedpod containing large black seeds.
