Old forgotten stock..Recomposed

Post  Robert Steven on Sat Mar 23, 2013 9:30 pm

At the corner of my garden, I found few old stocks of Feronia lucida,the forgotten materials. One of them was designed "squeezed" on the rock, but the result was not what expected.

Blinked..why not to have them combined into new composition ? and here what they came out this afternoon.
Quite happy enough... sunny

Looks very nice. Is the left trunk squeezed between the rocks? I like the composition.

I was not familiar with the species, Wikipedia was not entirely helpful either. Is this species a Wood Apple? Listed (after several Taxonomy revisions) lately under genus Limonia? If it is are these trees in your composition big enough to produce flowers and fruit? Is it a fruit that you or others eat where it is grown locally, or do you use it more for its other uses, such as a gum source or for medicinal purposes.

Mostly just curious, as I am a northern grower, and can't really do justice with tropical species. I have to rent greenhouse space for the winter for my one medium size ficus, because it won't fit into my under lights set up.

I suspect anyone that can grow Ficus outdoors will be able to grow this species. It does look interesting.

Tks Leo. Yes, that one is squeezed between the rock.
This is tropical, no flower nor fruit, at least I have never seen one..and not so many scientific info neither....

There they were before...

Thanks Robert, through my botanist/taxonomist friend, over the years I did get some understanding of the fact that the taxonomic floras are never fully complete, and are always under revision. And I have tried using leaf and twig keys to figure out what trees I'm looking at, and I find them difficult to use and time consuming.

I really like that tree squeezed into the rock, and now with more years on it the fusion looks even more complete. With the other trees the whole composition comes together. Nice.

Interesting ideas, Robert! I understand Feronia is a relative of citrus....

Pretty much, Robert! I remember seeing photos of fruting shoots of some citrus grafted onto a feronia....

Yes. It is in the Rutaceae family. The correct scientific name is Feroniella lucida.
