It was growing in an irrigated park not far from the beach.
I noticed the bark on the other side of it was darker. This side faces west and seems to have been whitened by calcium in the bore water (?) The leaves were very blue / green with crimson petioles.
If anyone knows what it is please leave a comment or drop me a line.
