Melaleuca Cuticularis , albero della famiglia del mirto, Myrtaceae , originario dell'Australia sud occidentale . I giardini botanici Hanbury sorgono sul promontorio della Mortola nel comune di Ventimiglia in provincia di Imperia a pochi chilometri dal confine francese . Il parco della villa rappresenta uno dei giardini di acclimatazione più famosi d' Europa e del bacino del Mediterraneo . I giardini furono realizzati a partire dal 1867 grazie alla passione del viaggiatore inglese sir Thomas Hanbury che , dopo aver fatto fortuna come esportatore di tè a Shanghai , decise di stabilirsi sulla costa ligure ed acquistò dapprima il palazzo dei marchesi Orengo di Ventimiglia e successivamente i terreni circostanti su cui volle realizzare un giardino con specie botaniche raccolte in ogni parte del mondo . Alla sua morte avvenuta nel 1907 il figlio Cecil e la nuora Lady Dorothy portarono avanti l'opera di sir Thomas . Nel 1960 lo stato italiano acquistò dagli eredi il complesso la cui gestione nel 1987 venne affidata all'Università degli Studi di Genova . I giardini , oltre a conservare una notevole collezione botanica , sono ingentiliti da fontane , statue ed altri elementi architettonici . Una delle fontane più famose è la fontana del Drago che prende il nome dalla presenza al suo centro di un bronzo giapponese che Sir Tomas Hanbury acquistò da un antiquario a Kyoto nel 1893 ; la fontana è antistante una nicchia che ospita una statua di schiava di scuola canoviana . Fra gli elementi architettonici più importanti c'è il Mausoleo Moresco in cui sono tumulate le ceneri di Sir Thomas Hanbury e della moglie e il Tempietto Quattro Stagioni in cui sono tumulate le ceneri di Lady Dorothy . #Giardini

It is the mysterious laws of nature that regulate the world and give these intriguing tangles of green.
Great job, well documented.
Congratulations Silvio!
Have a nice day

The photo is beautiful and even more the explanation that you included in the post.
The tree of the Myrtle Family, too difficult for me even the repetition of the original name, visually resembles the tentacles of an octopus.
Shooting with attention to good detail without exasperation from post-production delirium.
maximum.
