Cork Bark Chinese Elm Bonsai Tree
To give it it's full name - Ulmus parvifolia Jacq. corticosa - The Cork bark Chinese elm is a cultivar of the familiar Chinese elm but with one very important difference...the amazing bark. Fully hardy and frost tolerant to minus 5-7 Celsius, this elm is simplicity to keep and train as bonsai. Feed well, prune regularly and re-pot into our No1 Bonsai Soil Mix every one or two years, keep well watered in summer and that's about it. Very attractive autumn colour that can include yellow, brown, green and red at once.
Purchased as part of a collection earlier this year this is a beautiful shohin size cork bark elm. Previously exhibited at the prestigious Ginkgo Bonsai Awards. This old elm has obviously been in a bonsai pot for decades and has great character as a result. We think the ramification can be easily improved, a simple job over the next couple of years. These elms are becoming increasingly hard to find and are making ever higher prices as a result.
8.5" tall above it's pot. 11" wide overall. 4" diameter nebari
Planted in a nice Japanese made bonsai pot.
