Identification needed

Post  Vitusus on Fri May 27, 2016 6:52 pm

Hi guys, I got this one out of the ground while doing some weeding of the flowerbeds but I have no idea what this one is. However, I put it to the pot as I wanted to try the look of new bonsai soil I bought few days ago (Terramol).







Now, what to do with it when it gains some strength?

You think it's some kind of a willow? Just asking, I really cannot recognize any tree except for the few basic ones Very Happy

Hi guys,

I need your help with identification of this tree, I got it as Christmas gift last winter but there was no sign attached saying what species it is. Any ideas?








And any special tips and tricks on this type of tree? So far I only noticed that the leaves which are made of small segments are very prone to drying and are being replaced all the time. Is it natural? It looks to me like the tree is just renewing its oldest leaves all the time but I am just asking, one never knows.

Caragona spinosa - čínský pepř
Indor plant in your zone.  Don't like wet roots.   Needs well drained substrate.  Water and leave the soil to dry a bit.  The best - contact Mr. Pišl who supply the Czech DYI with such plants.
Good luck.

Update after one year of this one:





Still not sure what it is though Rolling Eyes Can anyone help with the identification? It is some kind of garden bush, the previous owner of my house had it in the flowerbed. You can see the small whitish flowers it has and then it creates small green fruit of which I unfortunately don't have any pictures.

Hello Vitusus,

With regard to the first tree you posted, can you provide a closer image of the leaves?  I have a few ideas about its identity, but I cannot be more certain without seeing the leaf more clearly with regard to its margin (toothed or not etc.), venation, and stipules.

As to the second tree you posted a year ago (sorry, I had not seen this thread previously), it is Operculacaria decaryi, commonly called jabily or elephant tree, native to Madagascar and commonly grown as a tropical bonsai.  There is much information about its cultivation on this site and elsewhere on the web.

I hope this is helpful!

Hello David,

Thanky you very much for your answer, as for the first one, I am fairly inclined to agree with lordraglan that it is some variety of cottoneaster but will make a detailed picture of leaves and will post it here to get a confirmation.

As for the second one, I had a message from Vlad that it is a chinese pepper and I tend to believe that as it is commonly sold in hobby markets here in Czech Republic and I got it as a present from my gf's brother, who are by no means bonsai specialists so they probably got it somewhere in a supermarket. That said, I sadly managed to kill that one, probably with too aggressive root pruning during the repotting, shame on me.

My own Cotoneaster

Post  lordraglan on Fri Aug 11, 2017 1:25 pm

This is my Cotoneaster, the reason for my identification is the way it develops to a herringbone shape and it has to be trained out of it. Individual growth spurts like yours has are common.
