Please help me ID this tree

Post  ray78 on Thu Oct 04, 2012 2:37 pm

Hi IBC,

Please help me identify this tree. The vendor said it's a Chinese Sumomo but the pics I see online don't match.

Thanks,
Ray

I don't think so. You need to contact a large nursery, bonsai club, or university. You can't do much with it as a bonsai until it is identified, at least by genus.

Thanks for all inputs. I don't think its Murraya paniculata because I have one and they look different. I'll post a pic comparing the leaves and flowers later.

Are those buds on the plant? If so, can we see a pic of the flower?

If you crush the leave, does it smell like anything? Citrus maybe?

Murraya ovatifoliolata, Yellow flower murraya, sometimes misidentified as Aglalia odorata. Crush some leaves. If they expell a citrus smell, it's M. ovatifoliata.

Bingo! Your plant matches pictures of Aglaia odorata, an accepted name in the Meliaceae. Murraya ovatifoliolata is different.

Thanks Ray,

but did you crush and smell the leaves as suggested by Jose' ?

If it is truly, Aglalia, I want to thank you for the extra information, especially the ---- 'much-branched' -, the shrub is showing up here and I didn't know if to buy and test one. The much branched part would possibly lead to a very successful bonsai.
Off to get one.
Thanks again.

Andre,

It's not scale but soot. I bought it from an itinerant vendor and even some leaves are black because of pollution.

Khaimraj,

Yup, I crushed some leaves and it didn't have a citrus smell. Also, the tiny yellow fruit match the pictures on the web.

And it has a lot of branches. Have fun with your new tree!

Thanks,
Ray
