Weekend Riddle:
In the picture you can see the leaves of 4 trees from our area. can you tell their names, and what do they have in common?


From right to left you can see: Plum Juniper (Juniperus oxycedrus), Common Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), Calabrian Pine (Pinus brutia) and Cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani).
all four are Conifer trees: they have narrow needle-like leaves. these are ancient trees in our world: they evolved before the flowers, so they reproduce using male and female cones.
You are welcome to see these four conifers in the Mediterranean section, as well as many other conifers all over the garden!

The weekend riddle is published in Facebook every Friday noon, the solution is published in Facebook on the following Sunday, together with the publication on this site.
