Ornamental Plant for ID :: Thane :: ARKDEC23 : 13 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (10)
Attaching some pics of an ornamental plant similar to Neolamarckia cadamba. This is a favourite with Bonsai growers. I have seen it at 2 places – in a nursery in Karjat, Maharashtra (Dec 2014) and in a cultivated garden in Thane (Dec 2016).
Both sets are attached.
Is this Neolamarckia cadamba or its cultivar or a different species altogether?
Requested to please provide ID.
It is N. kadamba only.
This is not Neolamarckia cadamba. It is very unlikely that N.cadamba would bloom in a pot. Looks more like a shrub. Cephalanthus sp. perhaps
Thanks … for the lead.
Googling suggests 2 possibilities – Adina rubella (Chinese buttonbush) and Cephalanthus occidentalis (common buttonbush).
But it is confusing (http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxonid=286741).
Could anyone please help.
The last two picture (9 & 10 from the top left) are those of Neonauclea endertii Ridsdale
Thanks … Any way to distinguish between all these visually similar species?
Most probably Cephalanthus occidentalis L.
