lomatia ferruginea

Garinish Island GlengarriffOne of the most beautiful trees in Garinish is the rare Lomatia ferruginea Tree – though it is really hard to find (not far from the Casita at the huge Cedrus deodara). The member from the beautiful family of Protaceae comes from Chile (with the native name Fuinque or Palmilla), where it can become 30 ft tall, the interesting leaves are fern-like.
