Schinus terebinthifolius - Brazilian Pepper Tree


Schinus terebinthifolius - Brazilian Pepper Tree (Schinus terebinthifolius - Brazilian Pepper Tree)

It's called Christmas Pepper tree, also. This is not my favorite tree because it's such a weed tree here. It's root are toxic some plant, also. Photo taken in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. on Dec. 17, 2013.

Terratoonie:

Merry Christmas to you. :>)

Can you believe it may be about 85ºF (29ºC) here on Christmas Day? It's going to feel like late Oct. instead of December.

The Brazilian Pepper tree is pretty from a distance. It's a horrible weed tree which pops up everywhere. It's also taken over the Everglades in Florida (it's extremely invasive in subtropical/tropical climates). Does it grow there?
