TREE OF A THOUSAND STARS (SERISSA FOETIDA) -

Distinguished by attractive, dark green (sometimes variegated) LEAVES borne at very short intervals along the branch and small white FLOWERS which appear in flushes throughout the year and give the tree its name.

Damp trunks and ROOTS give off an unpleasant smell in its natural environment but this is not noticeable in BONSAI>BONSAI speciments.

STYLE : Suited to all styles except formal upright and broom, but especially suited to multi-trunk or low spreading styles.

WARNING : Spray less often when in flower as they need to dry off quickly or will deteriorate. Ensure good air circulation.
