Details

Portuguese Oak Yamadori Bonsai Material
Quercus faginea, the Portuguese Oak, is a species of oak native to the western Mediterranean region in the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. It occurs in mountains between 0-1900 meters altitude, and flourishes in a variety of soils and climates. It is a medium-sized deciduous or semi-evergreen tree growing to 20 m tall, with a trunk up to 80 cm diameter, with grey-brown bark. The tree can live as long as 600 years. The leaves are glossy dark green to grey-green above, and variably felted grey-white below; the margins have 5-12 pairs of irregular teeth and resemble small holly leaves. Leaf fall is typically in mid to late winter.

This oak is very well suited to bonsai cultivation. It has tiny leaves, fine twigging and great bark quality. The species is vigorous and develops quickly. The tree responds well to pruning and wiring in summer. Keep faginea in full sun in summer and protect from excessive wet in winter. Repot rarely just as new growth appears in late spring.

This is a powerful oak with a thumping great trunk, hollow base and some superb deadwood as well as very small leaves. We have had this for a couple of years now and Graham recently completed the basic carving work and styled the tree for the first time. The trunk is hollow at the bottom. Ready for a pot next spring, this impressive tree just gets better and better.

21" tall above it's pot. 22" wide overall. 12" diameter trunk base.

Planted in a plastic nursery pot.
