Details

Japanese needle juniper bonsai tree.

Juniperus Chinensis rigida . Needle junipers are highly prized and much sought after trees for bonsai cultivation. They are fully frost hardy and will thrive in full sun and a quite windy open position. During the growing season rigida likes regular deep watering, allowing to dry just a little between times. Spending a summer in the greenhouse or polytunnel will dramatically accelerate the growwth rate of rigida and will significantly speed up tyhe development of dense foliage pads. When growing, needle juniper foliage should be pruned often and not allowed to become long and droopy. Feeding should be light. Repotting should be left until you notice drainage beginning to reduce, normally 4-6 years if using a good soil mix.

Repotting should be infrequent see our Bonsai Repotting Guide

Fertilising Chinese juniper is also very easy, use our Green Dream Bonsai Fertiliser or Ex-Fish Bonsai Fertilizer throughout the growing season.

This juniper came as part of a collection we purchased last year. The owner bought it from Harry Tomlinson over 25 years ago (and paid close to £3k for it back then!). We have had this in our greenhouse over summer and it's quite literally growing faster than our lawn. As a result the foliage pads have filled out incredibly. This variety is now getting very rare and valuable as so few are now coming out of Japan. If you always wanted a large impressive rigida this may be the last chance, we don't know of another for sale anywhere in Europe for even twice this price.

36" tall from the top of it's bonsai pot. 30" wide overall. 10" diameter nebari.

Planted in a nice unglazed stoneware bonsai pot.
