Mike's Blog - Day 70

Three in one, a tree with three different flowers on the same tree, +Laburnocytisus adamii.

This curious tree is a mix of a Laburnum (yellow flowers), and Broom, Cytisus (Purple flowers), and you get both. What you also get is a third flower that’s a bit of both…

You’d find nothing like this naturally. It’s the tinkering of a French man, M. Adam, somewhere near Paris in 1825.

Hopefully you can see all three flowers in the picture. It was difficult to get a photo as the sky was so bright.
