נסה לנחש איזה עץ ישראלי הוא קרוב משפחה של עץ סיני זה. רמז: כמו שעץ זה נמצא ליד הבריכה שלפניך, קרוב משפחה שלו נמצא ליד הבריכה בכניסה לקמפוס.

Guess which native Israeli tree is a close relative of this Chinese tree and the other privets. Hint: Just as this tree stands beside this pool, its relative stands beside the pool at the campus entrance.
