Dwarf Cork Bark Elm Bonsai Tree Material
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.
A few years ago we had a stunning little dwarf foliage cork bark elm come into the nursery. We were unable to identify it precisely but whilst it was here Graham took a bunch of cuttings that ended up in the ground. About 10 years later and here is one of those cuttings. Early days but a nice broom style bonsai tree project. This elm has a tiny leaf that, depending upon localised conditions, may have some variegation in it's leaf. Craggy bark develops nicely if the tree is kept in an exposed condition.
15" tall above it's pot. 13" wide overall.
Planted in a plastic nursery pot.
