The trees and plant in this set of photos from Thursday all were strange in some way. Only one has flowers now, but you can hardly see them. This is Decaisnea fargesii. On the Arbutus menziesii, it looks like you're seeing flowers, but they're the new leaves. This gets the "cute" prize - Rhododendron dendrocharis. The hairs are almost as long as the leaves. And here's Stewartia sinensis, trying to look like a paperbark maple.
