What kind are the really tall street trees on Junipero between State and Chapala streets? They sort of look to me like some kind of hedge plant that has gotten out of control... I've always wondered...?
So the ID is most likely
White Feather Honey myrtle
Go to the City of SB website and launch MAPS:
Click the + next to vegetation
Underneath, click "Tree Inventory"
Zoom in, and you can tree ID to your heart's content - City street trees, that is.
Track down a copy of Trees of Santa Barbara, maybe SB Botanic Garden has it.
We moved here recently and wonder all the time what kind of trees we're seeing around town. What a great service, thanks for sharing!
They may be a weeping bottlebrush tree
