Today's posting is about the concept that I have experimented regarding the use of free-flowering woody climbers for big trees. In the tropical rainforest ecology such climbers are a crowning glory over the rainforest canopy. The species I used in Bintulu is the Saritacaea magnifica or Bignonia magnifica. This climber has masses of big purple flowers that blossom all year long. It is therefore a prime candidate for the Laman Kambatik 'crowning glory' plants.
