Help with identifying small tree

Postby PAT 1652 » 09 Apr 2019, 17:42

Can anyone please help to identify the smallish tree, my neighbour has inherited this garden full of neglected plants and shrubs, there seems to be 2 of these trees, with quite unusual foliage.
Fingers crossed

Looked at lots of sites and I cannot find it PAT 1652. I think we need Miss Marple on the case :)

Is it a Callistemon - Bottle Brush plant?

I have a great APP on my phone called "My Garden Answers" You take a picture of a plant and submit it and a selection
of comparisons appear and you select the best one. It does not work very well taking a shot of a plant via a monitor
screen though :? .

It looks too woody to be a bottle brush to me but you maybe right desira. The one posted does not have leaves on it that I can see.

This ABIES CEPHALONICA "MEYER'S DWARF"is the nearest I can come to it but do not think its the one.

According to my friend at Kew Gardens, they have identified it as a willow. They did not say which kind. If you wish me to send their reply, I will try to post it on here. T

This is what they sent me, however I am not convinced that they are right and will still keep looking. It's interesting that the 'leaves' appear to turn into flowers if you look very carefully, definitely not a bottle brush though. T

Had me doubting myself there ms green. :D

The plural of “leaf” is “leaves”, but the plural of “Leaf” is “Leafs”. ... If a plant sprouts a leaf, and then another, it has two leaves. But when the Canadian emblem, the Maple Leaf is used to represent a sports team, they are the Maple Leafs, not the Maple Leaves.

Sorry Ew, you've lost me there :roll: . However, I may have maligned the lady at Kew Gardens, think I have found what it is. Grey Willow, or Salix Cinerea to give its proper name.Apparently the leaves follow the flowers, that's why there are none on the original photos.I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. T

Thank you all so very much, sorry for the delay in reading all replies and saying thank you, I will pass on to my neighbour, she will be pleased to have it identified.
I knew contacting the KL Forum would get a result :)
