Chionanthus peglerae (Giant Pock Ironwood / Bastard Black Ironwood / White Pock Ironwood)
A relatively rare species in the wild, very variable with regards to size, with a neatly rounded, somewhat spreading canopy of deep green leaves and a tall, smooth trunk. New leaves are beautiful, with hues of deep red, yellow and orange, and this tree is a wonderful, decorative addition to any garden. The name stems from the tiny hollows, or pock marks, that are found in the axils of leaves. These are structural attributes, and house what is believed to be symbiotic microbes.
