Marianne North tree


The Marianne North Tree, a huge misshapen karri, is named
after the English artist who painted it in 1880. An intrepid
traveler, Marianne North recorded flora from around the
world with her paintbrush. She came to Australia in 1880
and spent much time painting the scenery and flora of
the south-west of Western Australia. Her painting of this
tree now hangs in the Marianne North Gallery at the Kew
Botanic Gardens in England with more than 800 of her other
paintings.
