Cordia subcordata flower

Cordia subcordata growing on the beach. Its seeds float and are dispersed by the ocean. Commonly found on tropical coasts. Lily Beach, Christmas Island, Australia, April 2011.

 

Cordia subcordata is a bushy tree that grows to 15 m and belongs to the Boraginaceae family. That family includes Paterson's Curse, Echium plantagineum a herb-like weed. That is very weird.
