Crape Myrtle Tree

Crape Myrtle Tree
From the beginning Regeneration

This is a very rare sight: a pine tree growing out of a crape myrtle tree. In Japanese, the name for the crape myrtle means the “tree that is slippery for monkeys.” A sticky substance extracted from the sap of pine trees is used to make a powder called “anti-slip powder” that athletes use to stop their hands from slipping. So, some parents who have a child preparing for entrance exams come to see this unusual tree and pray that their child doesn’t “slip” in the exams.
