I told my neighbor that it was a "Pretzel tree!"...lol....Of course, if you wish, you can put it into the Data Base!

That's a Tropical Hibiscus. I don't know the variety without seeing a full open bloom. Someone has woven the trunks into that pretzel shape. People do that a lot with Ficus too.

Yep, plants are excellent "therapy". Thumbs up

I garden for the pollinators.

I agree, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Tropical Hibiscus) ... I've never seen one braided, very nice!
