devilwood (Osmanthus americanus )
Devilwood is an American version of famous sweet olive shrub from Asia. These two plants, side by side, are difficult to differentiate. They can serve as a proof that there used to be just one piece of land on Earth (Pangea) before it split to seven continents. And individual species, though previously identical, evolved separately reflecting slightly changing growing conditions. In case of American devilwood the benefit is improved hardiness. After the discovery that osmanthus sp. was polyphyletic devilwood was segregated under cartrema genus in 2011. Dev ...entire article

Linden trees are usually large plants that can be found in broad avenues, in parks or in old villages. They are beautiful but due to their size only a few gardens can accommodate one.
