"grove," "tree"); Arab. asal. Seven species of this tree are found in
Palestine. It is a "very graceful tree, with long feathery branches
and tufts closely clad with the minutest of leaves, and surmounted in
spring with spikes of beautiful pink blosoms, which seem to envelop
the whole tree in one gauzy sheet of colour" (Tristram's Nat. Hist.).
