Tree Identification

Post  t0fudelivery on Wed Mar 30, 2016 8:40 pm

Aloha Everyone,

This is actually my first post!  Very excited to be a part of this forum.  I'm fairly new to the art of bonsai with a few trees in my collection for now.  I have attached some photos of a recently acquired bonsai that was given to me from a friend.  A few things to note:


  • I live in Maui


  • Tree was from a local bonsai garden/nursery in Haiku, Maui where there is ALOT of annual rainfall

Welcome to the forum.

It looks like a Serrissa to me but don't take my word for it. I know nothing about tropical plants!

Sorry.

Regards

Richard

After doing a ton of research online, my guess is it's a Kingsville Boxwood. Can anyone confirm?

Yes,welcome to the forum.This is no Boxwood that I am aware of.Definately not Kingsville Box.I know that most species of Box are tropical but,even so,the leaf looks more Azelia than Box.Not guessing that,though.

Kingsville leaves:   http://d17vsf20mehj1i.cloudfront.net/42496_20120414T184904_0_jpg_171x171_crop-0,0_upscale_q85.jpg

Sorry for the tiny pic,but it was difficult to find a closeup of just leaves.Your tree has a lanceolate leaf shape with a pronounced point at the apex of the leaf.Kingsville has the typical box leaf which is either rounded or indented at the apex.

Yeah, noticed that. I did some more research on Serissa's and it seems the "tree of a thousand stars". Think I might have a winner.
