Ixora chinensis -"santan"

Post  Guest on Tue Feb 28, 2012 12:49 pm

Hi IBC.

I would like to share this big "dwarf" Ixora chinensis. So far, this (particular tree) is the biggest trunk of this sub specie that I know of...an added bonus. Very Happy


































recently....




I'll post it again. I'll let it bloom next month. yellow flower...It is ready to receive flower now.


regards,
jun Smile

Jun,

Beautiful tree. I imagined it would turn out great ever since the first time you got the material and posted it.

Maybe, you can choose another pot. Perhaps a chinese Lujing glaze (robin's egg) or yellow lotus or papaya shaped pot. When it flowers, it will create a striking contrast.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

hehehe. Thanks! no selling here in IBC... Wink The natural form (semi cascade) of this tree is one of a kind (I think) if not very rare. and for this specie to get this huge is also quite rare (for a shrub). So, I guess I'll hold on to this one. hehehe.

John, Mitch and Giomach,

Thanks guys. The only problem with this specie is getting the branch thick. The lower branch of this particular tree I think is more than fifty years old, and that is planted in the ground. The tree (material) was planted in a yard of an old house before World War 2.

Thank you Jose Luis for the nice words.

Again our common problem here is the availability of pots. I can imagine it planted nicely in a colored pot.

I know, my old elementary school used to be lined with it everywhere. Last I went home, they were all gone. The space is replaced with buildings and paved. Crying or Very sad
