Bonsai I.D Problems (sorry i know its typical)
Posted: Tue Nov 07, 2006 1:37 pm
Hi hoping someone can help. I read Id crisis from mamfle and one from gabs. Really googled to find out what type of bonsai I have but i know nothing about them and just can't be sure. Afraid I can't send picture as don't know how! anyway i got the tree from a garden centre its said it was 35 years old but no other info. It has a thick trunk slightly mottled in places. The leaves start off light green and turn darker (but they are all falling off at the moment) they are mostly toothed or forked at the end. It had lots of little single white flowers all summer and only stopped flowering last month. It looks like a funkien tea from some of the pics i've seen on bonsai4me.com but then it also looks like a chinese elm on bonsaiweb.com! can't find out if funkien tea or elm have white flowers or not and no mention of forked/toothed leaves. know this is a long shot without a picture and really appreciate any help as i think its dying and don't know what to do. hubby says its probably losing leaves cause its autumn! thanks again.
