Japanese Raisin

This is a very pretty tree that the sugar gliders love as do the native and regular bees, I would plant this as a shade tree for summer as it loses its leaves for winter , a very pretty shape | Noelle Maxwell - Byron Myocum , NSW 19-Nov-2013

Japanese Raisin (Seedling) 5/10

Amethyst's Edible Fruits
Update: 1364 days 9hrs

Comments: -

Spreading habit, interesting toothed leaves, starting to provide reasonable shade. The trunk also plays host to some lovely leafy lichens. Unfortunately I don't think Brisbane climate suits it very well. Did survive The Gap / Keperra storm in November 2009 so, credit there.

Update November 2013. I removed this plant in 2012. It grew to a nice size but it never had flowers and was riddled with red spider mite which made the leaves look awful.

Planted: 2008

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Summer

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Sheep, horse

When I Fertilise: Yearly

Pest Control:

Red spider mite is the bane of this plant and it is controlled using Malathon (yes, not eco-friendly I know but, darn effective).

planted in the wrong spot - a very dry area/full sun and it didn't survive the back to back 40 degree days, but prior to that was doing ok.
