Privet Bonsai Tree - Raw Material for Bonsai
Ligustrum Ovalfolium is native to Japan. Semi-evergreen and fully hardy. Probably the easiest and most forgiving species for bonsai cultivation available anywhere. Likes full sun or partial shade, loads of water and fertilizer and regular re-potting into a fairly close and moisture retentive soil. Train with wire at any time. Prune new shoots back to 3 leaves before the new growth begins to harden at the base.
Attractive sprays of white flowers in late spring once mature. A really nice fat privet trunk that is going to make a cool little bonsai tree. Perfect for a first carving project. Nice bark texture and lots of interest in the trunk.

A massive chunky privet with a powerful gnarly trunk. A nice involved carving project with lots of deadwood and hollows to produce. This will produce a very stocky high quality bonsai given a little time and care.

Planted in a plastic nursery pot.

17" tall above it's bonsai pot. 18" wide overall. 8" diameter nebari.
