On the sign:
מורן החורש
Viburnum tinus

תפוצה טבעית: אגן הים התיכון (למעט צפון-מזרח אפריקה), ישראל

חגיגת צבעים: ניצנים ורודים הופכים בחורף לגושי פרחים לבנים, המשמחים עין כל רואה. מהפרחים נוצרות ענבות אפורות-כחולות, הבולטות בין עלים מבריקים ירוקי-עד (שאינם נושרים).

[The second face of the cube]
Viburnum tinus

Natural range: Mediterranean basin (except N.E. Africa), Israel

A multi-colored treat: Pink buds grow into flat clusters of small white flowers that brighten the winter campus. These produce grey-blue berries among bright, glossy, evergreen leaves.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
מינים רבים של עצים פורחים משירים את עליהם בחורף בעוד אחרים, כמו עץ זה, נשארים ירוקים במשך כל השנה. מה יכולה להיות הסיבה לכך?

[a question]
Many species of flowering trees drop their leaves in winter. But others, like this tree, keep their leaves year-round. What might be the reason for this?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
עצים כמו עץ זה שגדלים באופן טבעי בארץ, יכולים להמשיך לגדול בחורף הממוזג והרטוב של ישראל. לשם כך העץ צריך אנרגיה שעליו מייצרים בתהליך הפוטוסינטזה. לכן עץ זה, כמו הרבה עצים מקומיים אחרים, שומר את עליו בחורף.

[The Answer to the question]
Trees like this one, native to Israel with its mild and moist winters, can grow throughout the colder months. For this they need the energy supplied by photosynthesis in their leaves. Thus, like many other native Israeli flowering trees, this species is evergreen.
