My Fukien Tea & Ficus nerifolia

Thought I'd share a couple of pictures of two of my newly acquired
plants.
They are both in the raw stage currently. I will be working on them in the coming weeks and hope to show some progress over time.

Fukien Tea:

F.nerifolia:

I was expecting seedlings for training but was pleasantly surprised with the nice starts these have made. :)

Ulmus Nerifolia? I'm not familiar with that species. Isn't that a willow-leaf ficus? Is there a willow-leaf elm?

Rosaelyn,

ficus?
Yes, it's a Ficus. Just a typo I believe.

Nice trees Len, they are nicer than I would have expected. Thanks for the pictures.

I'm sorry for the confusion. Yes, it's a Ficus nerifolia. I will correct the mistaken I.D. :oops:
