Fastest Growing TreeJP or CS or more accurately Sophora japonica is indeed a fastest growing tree in the garden! Seedling sprouted 2006, transplanted into the garden a year later. Today; (can't wait until this one begins to put out flowers -- maybe a few more years).

Japanese Pagoda TreeFully leafed out. Everything seems to be early this spring. Already saw Maypops sprouting.

Dormancy Breaking Late...This year. But the leave buds are coming out.
Saturday, March 14, 2009
The tree Breaks Dormancy in Early March.The young leaves are emerging. It remains about 5' tall after the grow-spurt on it first year.

Leaf drops.The tree became deciduous roughly the same time as Ginko bilopar drops its leaves.

JP growth is tappering down.Noticed after the growth sprurt on its first year. This tree is slowing down, and look pretty much the same height as it was this early spring.

As others catching up this slender growing tree.......This 1 year old tree continues to take off at a rapid rate. Needs staking still with the spring's April rains and windy site.

Foliage- buds.The tree's budding out early among other early decidous trees in the garden.

The deciduous form.After the compounded leavelets has fallen. The tree is but a bare, slender 'stick' of 5' tall. Planted it in its permanent spot. Will document its progress.

Heat & drought tolerant, pest resistance tree!The scrotching hot of triple digits the last few days just about to toast everything on the exposed West side of the garden - but, JP just sits there and soak it all in. We've moved Plumerias, Brugs into a sheltered shade, JP continues to enjoy the sun rays along with Cannas. Grow to be nearly 4 feet tall. No insect problem so far.
9/15/07; The tree is taller than I'm sitting in a pot. This will be planted this Fall.

Bigger pot for JPDid so a couple of week ago. The tree seem problem free thus far. Grows at a modest rate. Healthy over all.

J.P. looks like it's ready for bigger Pot.Still haven't found an ideal site for the tree. Continue to nurse it into bigger size. Currently flourish in an 8" pot. Having problems with uploading pics. lately. Arghhhh, either a new 'Puter. Getting rid of Dial-up. Or better yet. Both.

Slow growth, but goodNo further problem being outdoor in pot. Temp. heats up in the 80's
Sunday, April 8, 2007
Brought both back indoor as temp. dropped...Thought they would fair well. But being too little, the leave start to scrotch. Also found aphids on one of them. Ughrrrr!!!
Back inside for now. Washed off the Aphid, they seem ok.

JP1 and 2JP1's growth is stunned. The leave-miners (probably were transported by fruit-flies). Sprayed them, but still persist. JP2 is growing rapidly.

JP seedling, the second.First I mistaken that it was the exotic Brazilian Monkey-pod rain tree. But as it grew it looked remarkably like that of JP. Potted it into a bigger pot. Looking well.
Saturday, March 17, 2007
Sign of reinfestation, ughhh!!!The young tree look fine, except one single leave with evidence of blackspot. Trimmed the affected leave. Repotted the tree to a bigger pot, in case of root bound. No such sign, looking forward to get it out of kitchen's shelf. Needing a breath of fresh air. Although, it's quite humid around the kitchen, but nothing compare to what the outdoor can bring for plants around here. HUMIDITY. Thankful of it, for the plants sakes.

No new growth since I cut off the infested leaflet.Continue to keep the soil moist. But no growth? Will add some mild fertilizer, and try to harden it off to the outdoor.

JP1'sNoticed the six leaflet shows 7 compound leaves, instead of 5. The 'false leave' just now drops off. More pic. taken.
Wednesday, February 14, 2007
JP1's progressJP1 cont. to do well in small pot. the 3rd pair of leaves immerged. Since these compound leaves are alternate, one is smaller than the other. Watching the leaves unfurl is fun.

JP's characters...Discovered the danty tree preculiar habit characteristic. At night the leaves fold up like that of "prayer plant". Perhaps, that's why it was named 'scholar' tree? Implying it works/study during the day and rest at night? Delightful little plant. JP2 seedling hasn't come up yet.
Friday, February 2, 2007
JP's progressesKeep JP in small 4" pot with just sterile seedling-mix. Second pair of true leaves are apparent.
Friday, February 2, 2007
JP's siblingSoak JP seed in boiled water today (over night), getting ready to try and pot another seedling/tree. JP looks fine, cloudy outdoor. Moved JP back into kitchen's shelve where JP will get some floriscent lite.
Addendum: 3/22/07; The seed perhaps is nonviable? No sign of growth yet.
