Can you identify this tree that is growing so well here on the Darling Downs in QLD?

Many thanks. Rod G

Have you seen it flower? The leaf looks a lot like native frangipani.

I'd say it IS a native frangipani - Hymenosprorum flavum.

Yes Deadlevel--but the "Grasshopper" wasn't related to the garden--it was at the time I 1st got a computer and my Son called me Grasshopper--related to the film--in which the young bloke was learning--can't think of the name of it now--it was one of those Kung Foo movies
