Pomegranate

Post  Guest on Fri May 13, 2011 2:43 pm

Hi IBC,

My huge (90cm/3ft) pomegranate...

ready for wood works...
this is the back of the tree anyway.












Not as good as Will's work, but a couple of decades more and several dozen trees to torture...I hope it will be close. hehehe.




next stop, the 12" diameter base


I hope I didn't burnt the fruit out.




regards,
jun Smile

Jun,

I saw your other post and I've been trying to figure out what this is. Pomegranate is Punica, a very small genus of the Lythraceae family. On the surface it has many of the same characteristics of pomegranate (opposite leaves and those fruit), but I can't find anything that makes me think it's a Punica. It could possibly be part of the Lythraceae family that includes crape myrtles and Cuphia, but who knows. Do you have a picture of the flowers?

Seems like way back when you showed us a tree and we wondered if it was a barberry of some kind. You guys with these tropical trees we've never seen really make identification interesting!

Russell,

Thank you.
I'll look if I can find flowers somewhere.

This is a rare specie for bonsai, even here. I haven't find any other tree yet with similar features even in shows here, but it is a very good specie for bonsai because the fruits are much smaller than the typical pomegranate, leaves are more compact and thicker and the woods are harder... I even doubt if it belongs to Punica because the leaves are round and not elongated, more oval in shape, I have pomegranate bonsais but the leaves texture is also different.

I hope others here in IBC can Identify the tree.

regards,
jun Smile

I think it is different from "granada" Alex. When we arranged our schedule for your visit in my garden you'll see the tree and I'll show you how different it is from other "granada" (Punica).

Hey Jun,

Nice trunk and fruits. Good to see the work you have done. What is missing though is a pic of the tree taken from a distance which shows the complete tree. What we see so far is only parts.....

Hi IBC.

3 weeks ago I "burned" the tree...
...and some have doubted that the tree might die, due to the extreme approach.






...The lower part is growing wild for quite sometime now.

Hey L.L.B,

exceptional !!!, and great work!!!!.

Two things though - is it a pomegranate ? and if not what is the Latin name.
You may wish to ask Fiona, to change the title to what it really is.

When it is how you want it, I would love a good shot to keep for inspiration.
Thanks for taking the time to show.
Stay well.

WoW this is impressive Jun. I caught a fright when I saw the "FIRE" photo, and my heart skipped a beat when you said it died. I swore at you for a second....Mad  Very well done. It takes real guts and knowledge to achieve this. I would kill for a tree like this. What exactly is your address, so I can come see this tree.....? Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yes LLB,
Though I am not so interested (at least not in the scientific level hehe) of the Latin name. all indication except for the huge trunk size is similar to the common pomegranate that we know. I've search for it in the local plant listing, and I could not found it. It grows in the higher altitude of our country.
Unless others could identify it, I would stick to the closest similar plant which is pomegranate...and the locals where I got the material addressed it as a dwarf pomegranate.
