I know this is not for ID of plants, but I put this in that Forum but had no responses. This is a tropical plant I grew from seed, was supposed to be Combretum grandiflora vine, which is obviously is not. 1st two are from a tree about 4' tall, others are smaller. The last pic is of glands that are at the base of each pinnate leaf, each with 5 leaflets. The plants have never bloomed.
Any help, guesses, whatever, would be appreciated.
Or let it make a flower, and post here again. Flowers or seeds make it so much easier to ID. Taper back on watering it, and see if it puts up a flower bud? This hot, dry time of year I'll bet it will respond.
This unknow tree flowered. Not the one that is 6', but one the is much smaller. There are flower buds amongst the leaves but also directly off the trunk. I have attached the pics, Any ideas now? Also going to post in ID forum.
no, petels are small (maybe a centimeter), green, and completely curled back. Flower is all stamens, 2" across. Entire flower in 2" long, from base. Plus the leaves are in pairs and have that strange gland at the base of eacf leaf, seen in the last picture of the 1st post.
It is called the Scarlet bean tree. It gets twited seed pods after the flowers that turn bright red. When they are ripe the split open to reveal a yellow inside and black dangling seeds. I have a pod on my tree right now. The one that is 6 feet tall is blooming now too.
