Jun,

the pemphis may be more popular, but I find myself more drawn to your Murraya work. As suggested by either Will or Rob, could you list the source, seed or cutting or other, plus height and trunk size.
I am also thinking that this is a Murraya ?

As just an observation, these leaves have been trimmed ?
This is a Chinese practice from what I have read, and it makes the Murraya [?] look very different to what I have in the garden.

What does the tree look like when shot with lighting from a 45 deg. angle, just curious ?
Thanks for posting, it is eye candy.

Khaimraj,

This is not Murraya Paniculata. The tree that Jun share here with us is Murraya Exotica, with slightly larger leaves and a bit rounder in shape.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

Khaimraj,

Jose Luis is right. This is a different variety. leaves are quite thicker too.this specie will thrive in your climate, with special care.
you are right too, I am using different techniques, depending on the tree specie and the design I want to achieve.
the source of this tree is from a friend, as you can see on the trunk...the location of the dead wood between trunks used to have bigger trunk, the current trunk on the right side used to be a branch. this tree was a victim of one of the big floods here, that's why it was sold to me and I redo the design all over again.

regards,
jun Smile

Thanks Jose, thanks Jun,

I think what Jun has there is what we call Tobago Sweet Lime, as opposed to just Sweet Lime. The Murraya Paniculata is a small tree / shrub and the Murraya Exotica according to what is on-line is an approximately 2.5 metre high shrub.

Well that explains the extra branching and what looks like a different bark.

I also have a strange mutation of the Murraya Paniculata, with even finer leaves, and the white / off white bark. It also seems to branch more than a normal Paniculata. I will let you know if it survives or if the fluke will die suddenly.

Perhaps we should stick to Latin Names more frequently?

As you mention latin names, can I just observe that they should always be capitalised on the species and lower case on the variety so it looks like this Murraya paniculata. It's a small point, but it is the international norm. Wink

Kev,

I can barely remember how to spell these names, have a heart study
[Flacourtia indica, Tamarindus indica, Zanthoxylum fagara which somehow is tied to Fagara pterota, Erythroxylum ovatum cav., Citharexylum fruticosum ] - I can't even pronounce these - say what ?

With the art terms, the organic / inorganic dry pigment index numbers, the compounds in drying oils and a host of chemistry, not mention growing techniques, designs, compositions and patterns, computer commands, raising the dead, plus life - is there an emoticon for pulling your hair out ?

You are doing pretty well with these Khaimraj. I'm just putting it out there so that more people know. As long as an attempt is made at using the right name, I'm happy.

Kev,

as long as you realise that I am kidding around.

I actually have a list of all the trees, I have found and tested with the correct Latin names, just my handwriting is more like chicken scratch, illegible at times even for me. Years of note taking at the University of the West Indies, the Herbarium and other institutes.

Since meeting gm.it.seacom [ I know his name as well, this is my friendly term for him, ] I have been checking every Indian club on-line to see what is available in India and noting how English names for trees are mutating through pronunciation - e.g. West Indian Cherry is now West Wind Cherry. It is very important that we start to use the Latin or risk near total confusion.

I was for a time wondering what Jun was growing in this discussion, and we don't have any other name for the Tobago sweet lime. We also have the Maba buxifolia but as some weird local name, which I don't recall. For a short while I grew the plant, but it didn't appeal to me, and was given away.

I did suspect that you had more than a passing knowledge Khaimraj Wink Agree completely on the need for proper names to clarify the common ones, that people seem to be more comfortable with. Oddly I've found Linnaean names easy to recall after I developed an interest in Dinosaurs, as a kid, and then fossils and later plants. For some strange reason, with me they stick. Embarrassingly, I'm awful with peoples names and have to do all sorts of associative mind games to remember them. scratch

Sorry Jun, this is way off your topic, I'll stop now.
