Details

Holly Oak Yamadori Bonsai Tree
Quercus ilex
Holm oak or holly oak is a great evergreen species for bonsai cultivation and responds well to being in a pot. The tree develops quickly if kept in a bright sunny spot. The leaf of this species is quite variable but, on most plants, resembles a rounded holly leaf, hence the name. It is frost hardy to about -5 Celsius, however if kept dry over winter it will stand much lower temperatures. If you can overwinter trident maples this oak will be no problem. In summer it likes a lot of sun and is very tolerant of drought and drying winds. Shaping with wire is best done mid-summer. Re-pot infrequently and only when the tree IS in active growth, in the U.K re-pot in June or July using our No2 Bonsai Soil Mix. Oak rely heavily on mychorrizal fungi so when re-potting do not wash the trees roots and never prune roots more than is absolutely necessary. If holly oak is kept in a greenhouse in summer it will grow faster than anything you will have seen before and will develop at a quite amazing rate. Feed little and often with Green Dream Original Bonsai Fertilizer throughout the growing season.
