Tree identification
« on: June 20, 2015, 11:05 PM »
I received this tree as a gift. It didn't come with any information and I'm not sure what species it is.

Focus please.  It looks "tropical" and evergreen.

Agree.  Definitely tropical and not a pine.   ;D ;D ;D

I think it may be a Ficus of some sort.

Could be a Natal Plum (Carissa) but hard to tell without better focus.  May also be a Ficus of some sort.

I'd go with the Natal plum, but that is a truly awful picture, so . . .

i don't think it is a natal plum, it has opposite leaves, looks like it may be of the privet family to me, the white bark on the branches also points to privet, not a fig either, i don't know of a fig with leaves arranged opposite of each other

kind regards
