Hello randy - I'm glad you got a picture up.  You plant looks similar to Murraya paniculata, Mock Orange, but the racemose inflorescence does't match well.  I'm sure it is in the same family, the Rutaceae.  But at present that is about as close as I can get.  Do you have pictures of it in flower?  If so that would be very helpful.

It looks more like Durantha Sheenas Gold to me. Or a very unhappy Murraya ....But we need the flower to be sure.

Anyway both Murraya and Durantha are excellent bonsai material.

Love and Light

It looks like a popular bush here in Taiwan called a Chinese Perfume Plant or Chinese Perfume Bush, Aglaia odorata.

guys here is its taxonomy..it might be an interesting tree..

Chinese Perfume Bonsai Tree, scientific name Aglaia odorata, is native to China where it is classified as near threatened. This is a beautiful bushy tree that has similar characteristics to Orange Jasmine Tree. It produces yellow fragrant flowers that don’t open. They are shaped as grain of rise, hence one of the common names Chinese Rice Flower.
The flowers bloom few times a year producing very sweet lemony scent, hence the other common name Mock Lemon.
Chinese Perfume Bonsai Tree has also a medical use: orodine and ororinol obtained from this plant has cancer chemo preventative activity. It is an outstanding indoor bonsai that is very easy to grow.
Additional Information
Family: Meliaceae
Botanical name: Aglaia odorata
Common Name: Chinese Perfume, Chinese Rice Flower, Mock Lemon
Origin: China
Hardiness: I does best in the USDA Zone 10-11. Needs to be protected from freezing temperatures.
Light Requirements: It can grow in a full sun or partial shade.
Water Requirements: It likes moist well drained soil. Never allow the soil to dry out completely.
Propagation: Seeds, cuttings

It is often used for bonsai and landscape trees alike here. I have a hedge using these and a bonsai I have just started training. This tree is every where in Taiwan.
Quite hardy and likes lots of water. I have one in full sun and my hedge is in partial shade. It grows very well and gets a nice full canopy.
Be careful when bending branches as they are prone to snapping. Wire and bend when green before they harden. It does seem that scares are a bit harder to heal on these guys. Despite growing well, it does not seem to thicken up very quickly and may need some time and patience.
