Details

Citrus trees come in almost infinite varieties. Identifying each type can be a nightmare but at least one thing is for sure, they can make fine bonsai trees. This lovely tree is Citrus myrtifolia, the myrtle-leaved orange tree, is a species of Citrus with foliage similar to that of the common myrtle. It is a compact tree with small leaves and no thorns which grows to a height of three meters and can be found in Malta, Libya and in the Liguria, Tuscany, Sicily, and Calabria regions of Italy. It bears absolutely beautiful and strongly scented flowers in spring. The fruits, which look like very small oranges ripen in the following spring.

Citrus like to be kept warm year round and appreciate strong direct light. If kept cool over winter (4-12 Celsius) they may lose some of their older leaves, if kept warm they are fully evergreen. Citrus grows very well in summer and should be allowed a good run before pruning back for shape. Keep very well watered when in active growth and fertilize well. When dormant allow the soil to remain just a little drier than normal, this will help prevent root rot. Repot once root-bound in the pot and watering becomes difficult. Repot in LATE spring (May or June in the UK) as new growth appears. Use Akadama and Pumice mix. Citrus are a simple and very rewarding tree to grow as bonsai.

A beautiful citrus with a nice trunk that's coming along very nicely. Some time, a little carving and wiring will dramatically improve this fine tree. This spring the dispaly of flowers was quite something to behold and the scent was simply out of this world. Needs a little growth to fill out but all the basics are here. A beautiful tree which should be a joy to own.
