Yeah! Every once in a while when I let it go every few years. They tend to look unruly if left to flower.
I recall you saying you had some Poinciana...care to post a pic or two of those?

Cheers!

What is a poinciana? Looks like hawaii and Australia have many trees in common huh? Sam, I found some Acacia Farnesia in Maui, might go for a hunt! Ive been watching your posts with great interest you seem to work on all the different trees in Hawaii, ive been learning a lot just reading your posts haha Very Happy Have you ever tried a Kukui nut, the leaves look like maples and I wondered if they could be reduced?

Too many Questions

Arno,we do have many trees in common with hawaii & most of the world.. Its partly our migrant history, everyone wanting what they had at home, here. And partly our climate, there isnt much you cant grow in some place or other & alot will grow over a fairly huge range. I can grow tropicals along with cool climate deciduous trees side by side.

Anyway I thought I might share some of my aussie trees... all in training
Auracaria bidwillii, grown from seed & now spending time in the ground fattening (very slowly!!!) 45cm tall x 60cm wide

Boronia polygalifolium, 4yrs collected from the wild 10cm tall. hand made pot

Glycine clandestina, self sown seed that was allowed to remain in a shallow tray for a few years, repotted this year exposing the roots.

I found this thread buried here somewhere...and it was started by a guy name "Jun"...that's weird. hehehe.

Anyway, here is a new one. I am showing this now because it is already bearing the magic fruit.

Synsepalum dulcificum. Miracle fruit but we call it here "magic fruit". This is one of my "favorite tree" not because of it's design (it's a pencil bonsai_) but It will stand out among all other fruiting trees.
The magic is in the fruit/berry.Once you ate the berry of this tree, everything sour from unripe mango, citrus, even vinegar will taste sweet....Now that's a bonsai worth displaying during drinking session and bragging time with bonsai buddies who got nicer trees than you have..hehehe

L.L.B,

big bear hug to you. We have that shrub/tree, but never thought to try as a bonsai.
Will have to get a seed.
Thanks a million.

Hello to all, I do not know if it is a rare Bonsai. In Italy it is called “I yield of the forest”.

nageia nagi (Asian Bayberry)

Post  Cockroach on Fri Dec 07, 2012 2:05 am

Here is my nageia nagi (Asian Bayberry) That a friend a few years ago bought in pot with about 20 other 1" seedlings. I took over the plant not long after he bought it. Slow grower and not sure where it is going to go. It has been growing for about 5 years now.

Sambucus Nigra or black elder

Post  Weeijk on Fri Dec 07, 2012 10:27 am

Talking bout rare species, common bush in Western Europe, flowers and makes black berries where elderjuice, tea, marmelade and gin can be made off.
My elder is about 60 cm high and has a trunkdiameter of 20 cm.
Next year it will be repotted in a newly bought pot made by Erwin Grzesinski a German potter.

with kind regards, Wessel

Hi Jun,
I was reading your description of how the fruit from Synsepalum dulcificum will make sour things taste sweet. How long does the effect last? My wife loves grapefruit but "out of season" fruits are very sour.
Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Todd

Hi Todd!

The effect will take hours for just one fruit...really amazing, I forgot to mention even bitter tasting foods will taste sweet too.
The fruit BTW is being used as an ingredient to artificial sugar.

regards,
jun Smile

That looks like a wild currant to me. We have tons of those in the mountains of Colorado. I have not had much luck at a bonsai though. Good job!

Hello, this is my first post! Some lovely images on this thread!

I just wanted to say hello to Jun, and that the first image of this thread (on page 1) with the ribbed and pointy leaves:

as starter this is my other unusual tree...
I have not ID the Latin name yet...so if somebody is familiar with the specie please do help to ID it.
regards,
jun


I cant say for certain but as a starting point (if you've not found it already), I believe this is very similar to the Horse Chestnut or "Conker" tree we have here in the UK, it's not native to the UK but it was introduced in the 1600's and its now a very common tree in most urban green spaces Smile please don't think I'm trying to put it down, whilst the Chestnut is very common here, I've never before seen a Chestnut bonsai, so if it is, it's pretty special! Smile

Latin name for the Horse Chestnut is "Aesculus hippocastanum". Even if it's not a Horse Chestnut, the leaves may be similar to some others of the hippocastanum family?

hwyl fawr!

NICE! Do those thrive in your zone? I supposed that they were more tropical. I'd love to see what can be done with them!

Another collected ficus. No id yet. The new leaves are almost red in color.

I found this junipers at the botanical garden at $1.2 each and bought them all. It is Widdringtonia cedarbergensis juveniles. I bent them all crazy and will put them in the ground.


And this wild scrambling fig with tiny hairy leafs: It is 4m long and growing in my rockery. Maybe birds brought the seeds.
