Don't quote me on it, but I believe it is a Black Cabbage tree, melanodendrum integrifolium. But -- there are three types of cabbage trees on Saint Helena, all endangered, and I'm not an expert.

Do me a favor and respond if you get this. I never get responses.

Dan is correct and that is the best pic I can find of it. I wish I had a warmer climate I want one in the backyard.
