    You’re welcome lena and best luck on “Bone Fire” purchasing! Thank you Shashi M. for your input. However according to source, the mast tree (Polyalthia longifolia)is only hardy to U.S.D.A. Zone: 10a-11 (Minimum 32¡F = 0¡C). St Louis, MO is in zone 6b, it will be too cold for mast tree in my humble opinion. The leaves of P. persica’Bone Fire’ can be varied as in these images from the included link below. Best wishes Shashi M!

    The leaves in the pics posted are weepy not perky, and wavy not jagged/serrated so it cannot be the dwarf ornamental peach tree.

    Going by the leaves, I’d speculate that it’s a Polyalthia longifolia (mast tree.) Check out the below links to confirm

    Thank you so much. I checked and it is the plant that I so much want. However, each Nursery I checked was out of stock and gave no info on restocking. I will continue to check throughout the planting season to find one available. You have been very helpful.

    Maybe an ornamental peach. Check out Patio/dwarf peach ‘Bone Fire’ and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
