Tree similar to Tupidanthus (Shefflera Pueckleri)
There are two large trees in my area that look like very large Tupidanthus "trees". They are not damaged by the same freezes that kill any Tupidanthus that I have bought.
I've tried buying Tupidanthus from the local nurseries and they always die with the first freeze. It rarely gets much below freezing here but we do see mid 20s from time to time. The ones I've bought were way more cold sensitive than my citrus and avocados.
One of the large trees looks like one of the plants I bought that has grown for 30+ years. The trunks are still numerous and only about 3" diameter even though the plant is 25' tall. The homeowners only know it was planted as a fairly good sized plant around 20 years ago by a professional landscaper.
The other one is clearly a TREE even though the leaves look really similar. The single trunk is 12" diameter with branches coming off that are 4"+ in size. The house isn't old enough for it to be much, much older than the plant above. The current homeowners know nothing about the tree and the area was an orange grove 35 years ago.
Is there some plant that meets this description?
