Family Mimosaceae, Pararchidendron pruinosum
Tall tree to 8m, lime green pinnate leaves, clusters of yellow puff ball flowers. The flower photo was taken 26th August and the fruit photo was taken 25th November.
Tree growing on the James Cook University, Cairns campus.
In the fruit photo the leaves look different from the pinnate leaves in photo1 because it is actually a mistletoe growing in the Pararchidendron. You may be able to see the new buds of the mistletoe mid right hand edge of the photo.
