There was an episode where they were on an island and used a green umbrella as a palm tree - so perhaps Umbrella Palm?

Hi Joker,

The online encylopaedia give Umbrella Palm as:

"An Australian palm tree (Hedyscepe Canterburyana) cultivated as an ornamental for its feathery, drooping leaves with silvery-blue sheaths", and its also mentioned in Wikipedia.

There's also the umbrella pine, shaped as named, found all over southern Europe and north Africa.

Thanks Campanilla,

Alas, already used umbrella in another question. You must have a good memory to remember episodes. I can bearly[sic] remember the characters - did have a crush on Jane though.

Regards
