Can you help me to identify this tree, bought as a tropical variety. The leaf looks like Azalea but the flowers are différents.









Thank you

Help Identify a Tropical Variety

Sorry, I do not believe it is Fukien tea. Ehretia microphylla has very distinctive obovate leaves with a few scallops, and tiny single white flowers on a long pedicel. It is hard to see these flowers because they are overexposed. Are they fragrant?

HI Dorothy,
This tree is not for me, but for a friend of my wife.
In my opinion it must be reform, it has the "S" form and is too long. If it was mine I'll keep only the first three branches and form a little bonsai with a movement on the left side.

I hope my English is understanding...

Regards
