Little Ray of Sunshine

The US has a plethora of flowering trees, but I don't know of anything the equivalent of sloe. Most of our Rosaceae are very disease prone & not easy to bonsai. And nobody ever brought over a blackthorn & propagated it. You never see them for sale here (that I know of).

I have collected some Crataegus marshallii (parsley hawthorn) mine havn't flowered yet but are progressing nicely. I may be wrong but it may be as close as you can get in the States.

Don't be so sure Marcus. Its because of beautiful trees like Wills that a demand has been made for these fabulous trees. My farmer friend does not have an unlimited supply.

Thankyou for all the comments and likes. For those who asked, I made the pot a couple of years back and it seems to get a marmite reaction from people.
Will I be in line for one of your newly collected Blackthorns Tony. Seeing as you slid an advert for yourself in the thread? You shameless hussy you Rolling Eyes Smile

Another leaf pruning for this one too. Look at the plums on that!!!!

Removed more than half of them once the picture had been taken.

Will and Bryan,

thanks for the encouragement. We don't have blackthorn [ though it did grow easily down here [ from the Isle of Wight back in 94,] until the neighbours cat got it in 2000.
But we do have Erythroxlum ovatum.cav., which comes from the mangrove swamps, flowers as white small stars, and during our dry season, when no rain falls.
Fruit is a tiny red pill.

AND, yes I do know the cousin.
Beautiful trees.

We have another cousin that grows inland as well. Still testing.
Thanks again.
