Quadrifoliate poncirus
« on: June 07, 2020, 11:25:01 PM »
An acquaintance posted this in another forum.



"Quadrifoliate" poncirus, poncirus leaves with four lobes instead of the normal three.

It's growing on a sucker.

It happens occasionally SoCal.......watch the shoot and see if it develops into a limb with all quad leaves. If it does.....propagate....you will have an oddity.

Great post Ilya11,  Your post provides a clearer answer to the 4 leaf growth.  As Bomand wrote it would be awesome is the 4 leaf growth would indeed continue to remain as (and if) it develops into a branch.
