ID this trees pls

Post  jaisankar on Sun Jun 17, 2012 2:03 pm

Hi, I have bought some tree plants from a horticultural office. But I doubt the names they said, first image here they mentioned it of a Ficus variety, but i doubt that. Second type of tree they said it as Tecoma Argentina.. dont know either coz the leaves of Tecoma Argentea does not look like this one.

Please identify these plants, hope its good material for bonsai.

Tree 1 - is this a Ficus?




Tree 2 - Is this Tecoma Argentea?

The second is a Ficus. The first could be Tacoma argentea, now named Tabebuia aurea, but tropicals are outside my comfort zone. Hopefully someone else can help with more certainty.

The second looks like Tabebuia aurea. You will know for sure if it blooms. The first could possibly be a Ficus. Does it bleed white sticky sap? That is a sure sign.

This is Tabebuia and not a Ficus? IDing tropicals isn't my game, but this sure looks like ficus to me.

They are growing in absolutely terrible soil.
