Hello Yog - as Fiona has said, a clearer picture would be great.  Is this a plant you collected and which is native to India, or is something grown horticulturally?

Cherry or not

Post  yogesh on Thu Jan 16, 2014 6:44 am

Hi,
Someone identified this plant as a variety of Cherry. I have seen tiny flowers a year back.
it has reddish stem and grow as a shrub.
leaves are always in adundance and dark green ( the yellowing is rare as seen in the pic)  with smooth edges ( a Cherry plant doesn' have smooth edge.)

regards,
Yogesh

The last one looks like a Malphigia glabra, it is sometimes called Caribbean cherry. In Spanish is known as Acerola.

Hello Yog – Ortizdhs could be right about your plant being Malpigia.   The leaves which are opposite on the stem and with entire margins are correct for Malpigia and rule out a “standard” cherry which would have leaves alternate on the stem and with serrate margins.

I know better than to get into discussions about the identity of a tree I am only marginally familiar with and Malphigia is one of them.  I had one  years ago and this sure does not look what I had.  The fact that it has leaves all the way into what appears to be three year old growth/wood makes me doubt the Malpjigia. The fact that the growth looks more like coniferous needles and not leaves, which is what I remember the Malphigia as having again leads me to think it something else.

Yog,
Though the photos are not that great, this plant does look like Malpighia emarginata (glabra) also called Barbados Cherry/Acerola Cherry.
here's a link to some information on it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbados_cherry

The first picture is too fuzzy to hazard a guess but I'll agree that it does look coniferous.

Hope this helps.

Mr. Wood:

I hardly post anything in this site. I only post when i'm 100% sure which is the case here. I lived in the tropics all my life. As a child it was common to climb on a "Acerola" tree, Malpighia in the international bonsai vocabulary and had a feast when in season. Maybe what you had was not a Malpighia glabra after all.

Hi Ortiz, Woods, Nigel Parke, David

thanks for great insight ..

its seems to be (Malpighia glabra.. will also post another plant of the same type....
they are not good at wiring .. just read that cutting stem is better to style and branching.
they are shrubs and one is a 10inch pot doesn't thiken for an inch... the one i posted is in garden and have a small trunck of 1-2 inch .....

is it a an average bonsai material or poor.

regards,
Yogesh

Vance – I think there is a bit of confusion here. Yogesh has posted two plants for identification. The first one is certainly a conifer but the photo is blurry so accurate identification is difficult. I believe this is the plant you were referring to. The second is clearly a dicot, not a conifer, and has been identified as Malpighia by Ortiz and others.

Many thanks for your assistance in helping Yogesh identify his plants!

100% with David, I didn't even think about that. That is why is always important to start a new thread for each tree. Well at least we were able to help him identify his trees.  Very Happy
