Comose Fig Tree

Our thanks to David Strauch, of the UHM Campus Inventory and Landscape Mapping Project, for this great picture and caption.

 Attached is a pic of our great irrigation specialist, Walter Fiesta (who made the Arbor Day plantings possible by bringing water to Metcalfe field), with the newly planted Ficus benjamina comosa, which was propagated by Rich Criley from the one we lost at campus center. It’s great to have it back in the collection, although of course it will be a long time before it attains the stature of its parent!
