Another type of ironwood

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Thu May 31, 2012 10:15 am

Hello to All,

this tree was grown from seed just for the trunk [ about 10 cm / 4 inches ] and I am only just starting the branches.

The one property this tree has is the ability to heal. Large wounds, are no problem.
Enjoy.

It looks very much like a hornbeam -- Carpinus sp. Hornbeam also are known as "ironwood." I wouldn't think they'd grow down where you are in the southernmost Caribbean. Do you have a Latin name for it?

Nice both potted and in nature. Have fun with it.

Well, I don't think so. Here's a picture of Peltophorum ferrugineum:



Not the same tree.

Warm regards,

Jose,

firstly, apologies for calling you Juan. I have a friend who is a painter, and has the last name of Martinez, I mixed up you two.

I also decided not to get into the Latin name bit, as we had gone through that before in 2010. I am sure you are correct, and hope no one has been offended.

So did you try to grow one?

Any luck with the finding of the local Celtis ?
Later.
