I managed to see the whole thread with my slow intenet, and enjoyed it...But now it is your turn to guess. I wonder how all this people that you made to guess did not return the favor...
Now I know you know what this is, but do you know the variety?

Thank you Leo..... Roses are amazing, and very easy to prune roots...hihihii I have two roses from 1906, that I will show in due coarse, they have amazing trunks..

Thanks Stonener, I appreciate it. I notice now that the rose for Yvonne is very out of fokus... shize!

Dearest darling Neli, you will have to dig deaper to catch me out....but I love it, thank you. What confused me about your flower is the creamyness or variegation in it...but it is of course
Erythrina crista-galli, The Crybabytree. They are absolutely stunning trees. In Kwazulu Natal we have the Pink and white form of Erythrina caffra, which is also very rare.

Congratulations it is truly beautiful Neli.

Love and light

Darling,
I sent the cook to take the picture...and it was too much sun, so the flowers actually are over exposed, but they are uniform purple??maroon?? color.
The truth is that I am clever pretender...No one told me the variety up to now...so I had to ask in a disguised way.bounce cyclops 
I am growing the trunk and it is over 15cm down there but need it a bit bigger so I shall chop it next year and grow a leader.


But I have very serious intention to catch you up, not knowing the name of a plant,...and I know I will do it. I am equally crazy about plants...and I have been bringing them from all over the world.

Hi Andre

It does not matter the rose was not quit clear on the Photo..it was the sice that mattered in this case...I hope one day hope to find a rose like this in Denmark, as they become nice as small bonsai with their flowers...

Sorry for highjacking your tread...Dear Neli
Your trunk is already quit nice big...15 cm. but you want it bigger...is it for bonsai?

Kind regards Yvonne

Yes Darling,
It is for bonsai. Coral tree is a bit hard to leaf reduce, though I have seen some with good leaf reduction, but different variety, so I thought of making it a bigger bonsai. I like my bonsai small, but need to think of proportions of the leaf to the size.Plus as you can see the flowers are large...(they look in size and appearance exactly like anthurium) and as far I as I know flowers dont reduce...and this ones are on the end of the branches...So sensible pruning needs to be done if flowers are wanted...and branches kept less trimmed or rather trimmed at specific time if flowers are desired.

Hi Neli

Many thanks...I guess it also is for the flowersice you want the tree bigger...how wide do you want the trunk, and will it take a long time?
Kind regards Yvonne

No Darling...Coral tree is fast to thicken in the ground, and you can transplant it with almost no roots. But if I make the trunk around 20cm, it will get nice taper after I trunk chop it after the second bend. So I am looking at around 60-70 cm tree.
This CT was planted 3 years ago at the same spot and it was pencil thickness. It should give you an idea how hast it is. They grow here almost all year round. Next year I shall trunk chop it and grow a new leader.
Got cuttings from it and already they are big in the packets. One of the easiest trees to root from cuttings, even huge ones. When I chop the top, I will prestyle it as a cutting and plant it as big as it is.

Hi Neli

I almost...just almost feel a bit envy...In Denmark is treegrowing SO slow...when thinking on my raft in my last topic... I have been working on it for ages, and the flowers are still to big for it, to be welcome, as I need the tree to grow still.

Will look for a update of yours.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks ivone,
I will not post it probably until I dig it out... I can imagine how little your growing season is. Good luck with the raft, but I \have a feeling flowers dont really reduce.

Thanks, I will look for Rosa 'Same Love', that is a really dainty, but perfectly proportioned flower. I have one standard hybrid T, I think it is 'Olympiad' that I rooted a cutting of late summer 2012, Right now I am just growing it out. It currently is still a single stem. By starting with a cutting, I won't have the issue of sprouts from the graft rootstock once I start doing serious cutting back on this. This I plan on a 12 to 24 inch plant out of.

I also picked up a shrub rose with single red flowers, but good reblooming tendencies. And one no name miniature with apricot to yellow flowers and a sweet fragrance. I will take your advice on how to grow them out. Thanks

Leo,
I normally bud graft my roses on wild stock. It makes them stronger and resistant to some diseases. I just take a cutting from the wild rose, bud graft it and then put it in sand to root, but they root even just in water if they are hard wood. Like long branches 1m+ long, I but graft and put in a bucket with water...they root and the bud graft always take.
To prevent suckers remove with a grafting knife all the buds when repotting.
I have seen in Japan roses that are so unbelievably tiny...and it seems they are very popular...All the top nurseries I visited had many rose bonsai...mame and shohin.
I have lote of pictures of them...and they do many ROR.

Friends I'm so sorry that these latest photos is so out of focus, but my brother took my camera on tour with him through Namibia, and I'm taking these with my Notebook.  I cannot get it to focus on the flowers..stupid trash! hihihihihihi

What is nice to me about his display is the way the roots drape off the coffee table ....





Anyway, kak photos, but please do enjoy....

I like the Acsodenda hybrid, (Ascocentrum x Vanda), that orange is electric. Some of the Vanda hybrids with Ascocentrum bloom more than one a year. (the straight species of both Vanda and Ascocentrum usually bloom once a year, but in different seasons). I like them as far as orchids for the home go.

What genus and species is the succulent in the parrot pitcher? I like the electric orange of its flowers.

Orange, seems a theme this month? A political bent? Just kidding.

The table is an Antique milking stool from Celtis africana wood. Got it in Prins Albert SA.
The Orchid you have seen before....




The figurine I think is Joseph and his amazing technicolour dreamcoat.  Got in from an Antique store in York England.  I just like it, nothing connected with it.

Hi Andre

I realy like both photos, the collors, and the setup....The kusamonos is nice, and the small milking stool work well with Joseph.

Kind regards Yvonne
