Rosettes of the Tree of Life around Lake Van


Urantia Book does not mention any flowers of the the tree of life. Both leaves and fruit of the tree of life were used by Van and his associates at first, and then by Adam and Eve subsequently. Thus, the tree of life was most likely a flowering shrub.

The tree of life was never transplanted to the Second Eden. However, Vanite ancestors of Assyrians were taught that their seven commandments were given to Van up on the mount Ararat or Urartu (p. 860, §6). Thus, one would expect the Assyrians in the neighborhood of the Second Garden would have kept the tradition of the tree of life.
