English Elm Native Bonsai Material
Ulmus procera. Much sought after and one of the U.Ks finest deciduous species for bonsai the English elm is a great and rewarding tree to grow as bonsai. (see Colin Lewis's book The Art of Bonsai Design).
Procera is fully hardy in all parts of the U.K and grows vigorously thus allowing fast development. For young trees in the early stages of development it is best to re-pot every year into akadama. This will keep the trees vigour high. Mature trees can be left two or three years between re-potting. Autumn will see the tree put on a splendid display of yellow colour before leaf drop.
This elm has grown like a weed this year putting on around 30" of extension. Now hard pruned and beginning to shut down for the year thanks to the long hot days hence the scruffy appearance. Only requires minimal carving work. Primary branching can be placed over winter..
22" tall above it's pot. 16" wide overall. 4" diameter nebari.
