Colors of tachi cauaçu

Rising above the surface water of an ancient creek, a tachi cauaçu tree opens new buds with a subtle show of colors. This will be the only show of color until new buds develop. The rest of the year, it's green, green and green. I should remark that you will see many colors, if you mess with the plant. It's home of a very fiery ant that will have you running for for your life, if they get on you. The plant is hollow inside and this is home for the ants. The genus is Tripolaris.
