This tree was spotted in Haiti and disperses seeds autochorously. Can anyone help ID it?
Looks like a schefflera.
Yes, it is a schefflera. I have had a smaller version for 30 years.
While on a business trip to Florida, upon arriving in my room I looked out the second floor window to be greeted by a schefflera. It was 30 to 35 feet tall but it was too early to witness the dispersal of seeds.
Link to info on the dwarf variety.....
Schefflera arboricola (Dwarf Umbrella Plant)
Link to info on standard variety....
Schefflera actinophylla (Octopus Tree, Umbrella Plant)
nope I don't think a schefflera. those look like individual leaves attached to the plant. a schefflera has a palmately compound leaf that is attached to the plant.
Interesting....I guess the mystery continues. Nice call Carolyn. The pod may be a hint.
Thank you all..please keep trying. I have never had this difficult of a time obtaining identification on a plant. I actually have this one posted on 4 boards and have had no luck. I have reached out to one Government facility and one University in Haiti but have not heard anything back. I am thinking that this may be due to the Holidays.
