Cloud Appreciation Society supporter H Brown has recently adopted a tree on behalf of the Society to support SHHGA – Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum, Jermyns Lane, Romsey, Hampshire, UK, SO51 0QA, where he is a volunteer. We hope that this will enthuse the public in general, and children in particular, about clouds and inspire visitors to the Arboretum to look up at the skies.
The maple cultivar features a flat base which reminds us of ‘the cotton-wool puffs, with flat bases’ from a description in The Cloud Collector’s Handbook. A common name is Lollipop Tree or Mop Head Tree.
We would like to thank H for all the effort he has put into organising this on our behalf.
