Hello!

I purchased a bonsai tree from a local store today. Unfortunately, the label just reads "bonsai" and does not clarify the type of plant it is. I've done some research, and I believe what I have is a Fukien Tea (Ehretia buxfolia), but I'm not entirely certain. I'd appreciate a second opinion!

Thanks!

You are correct! This is Carmona retusa (syn. Ehretia buxifolia).
