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 nice little shohin sized privet ready for working right out of the box. An easy little project priced to clear, we need the space.

Planted in a plastic nursery pot.

9" tall above it's bonsai pot. 9" wide overall. 4" diameter nebari.
