Monkey’s Hand, Chiranthodendron Pentadactylon

A Monkey’s Hand tree (Chiranthodendron pentadactylon) is flowering profusely in Myers Park (between Queen Street and the Myers Park Kindergarten). Originating from Guatemala/Mexico, there are a number of these unusual trees in Auckland.

    Quite a different kind of plant. I’ve heard of it before, but never saw the blooms.
