ID These Species Please

Post  jason40 on Sun May 01, 2011 6:16 am

Hello to everyone. I’m from the Philippines. I’m new here and I’m so glad I found this site. I’m also new to bonsai. I have these three species which were given to me a couple of years ago by a friend. Can someone identify these species please? Thanks.


SP 1 Very thorny. I always get my fingers pricked every time I try to trim the leaves/branches. I never attempt to wire it.







SP 2 Very thorny so I never attempt to wire it also except hooking wire on a branch to bend it downwards. Last week I saw several small flowers, pale lavender in color.








SP 3 I laughed when I asked some sellers in our area the name of this species. They all call it "japayuki" (the term we use for Filipino entertainer in Japan)

It looks like Tiphasia Tripholia or "Limau Rawit" in my country.

I think the first is Trifoliate Orange (Poncirus trifoliata) and the second might be Lime Berry.

Thanks PkWk
Thanks Billy
Thanks Johng929

Thank you for the response.

I googled the names you mentioned and compared the photos available in the internet. Now I have a name for species # 1. I am convinced it is Lime Berry (English common name) or Triphasia tripolia (Scientific name) or Limonsito (Philippine common name).

Now only two nameless species remain.

Identify three Species

Billy, the same common name can apply to more than one plant. That is why we use botanical names.

I am aware of that, I was responding to the post above mine "3rd picture is a Phyllantus Chinensis or Crepe Myrtle"

sorry, phyllantus cochinchinensis maybe is the exact SN but crepe myrtle is phyllantus myrtifolius? sometimes we tend to discuss the botanical names even scientific names may be different but somehow if we look for it perhaps in goggle we will find that scientific names are synonymous which means it refers to the  same tree, and sometimes one botanical name could  sometimes refer to different tree species, and sometimes varies in the places.
