Cork Bark Chinese Elm Shohin Bonsai Tree

To give it it's full name - Ulmus parvifolia Jacq. corticosa - The Cork bark Chinese elm is a cultivar of the familiar Chinese elm but with one very important difference...the amazing bark. Fully hardy and frost tolerant to minus 5-7 Celsius, this elm is simplicity to keep and train as bonsai. Feed well, prune regularly and re-pot into our No1 Bonsai Soil Mix every one or two years, keep well watered in summer and that's about it. Very attractive autumn colour that can include yellow, brown, green and red at once.

A superb little tree arrived from Japan over last winter. Growing like a weed, this will develop very fast.

5" tall above it's pot. 6" wide overall.
Planted in a plastic bonsai pot.
