Others like the coral and pepper tree were also familiar to me; not to mention the oaks and the American ash trees from the northern hemisphere. But there were many new ones: the beautiful small bauhenia trees with their white or pink flowers were very delicate. Jenny Grant, who lived in Hong-Kong told me that these flowers are the emblem for Hong-Kong.
