Name the tree

Post  Greg on Thu May 26, 2011 7:56 pm

I bought this tree on October 2010.

The tree was in a black plastic bucket probably for many years. The tree reduced to the desirable height and then repoted to a training pot. So far I am very happy with the new growth. The last photo was taken earlier today.

Unfortunately I don't know what species it is!
Any idea??

Dear Nikolas,

Unfortunately we cannot use greek in this forum. Please use only english.
The reason is that we have members from around the world and the 2 things that can join us is our love for bonsai and a common language which is english.
Thank you.

Stavros,
on behalf of the administrators

hi Will,
No is not a Bouganvillia.
Bouganvillia is quite common tree in Cyprus and Iam absolutely sure that this is not one of them.

Below is a photo how the tree was after a hard pruning on last February.
I need to take some fresh photos, hopefully next week Very Happy

just an update...
the tree now is in a new pot. The pot is by Erin.
But the most amazing is that after 4 year there are signs of flowers!! Shocked 
Iam still trying to identify the tree species. Sad
