Beuvronensis Dwarf Scots Pine Specimen Bonsai Tree
Probably the most sought after variety of scots pine the Beuvronensis or Dwarf Scots Pine has a strong growth habit coupled with very small needles and beautiful flaking bark. In other respects it is the same as any other scots in bonsai cultivation. Scot's pine (Pinus sylvestris) is a remarkable tree, naturally it occurs from Spain in the south to Lapland in the north and east across Siberia. Obviously it is tolerant of a vast range of conditions from almost cooking in the dry hot Spanish summer to deep freezing in the horrific Siberian winters. Many authorities consider Scot's pine to be the worlds finest species for Bonsai Cultivation. It is very tough and can withstand the rigours of bonsai training easily. It is vigorous in growth habit and back buds easily, within a very short period it will produce a tight compact crown and once twig density has been established the needle length very quickly reduces. Scot's pine also develops wonderful craggy bark texture, a highly valued feature in bonsai material. As with all pines re-potting is rarely necessary, several years can pass before work will be required. Scot's pine appreciates regular feeding but only very lightly. Also it is important to provide a little feed about once a month throughout the winter during warmer spells of weather. The tree will appreciate being allowed to dry out just a little between watering or the foliage colour will begin to fade to a sickly yellow/green.
By a country mile this is the best beuvronensis scots pine we have ever seen. A simply stunning mature bonsai tree with all the beautiful characteristics of the best scots pine variety available. Decades in a bonsai pot and pretty much perfect in every respect. If you think this tree is expensive please don't buy it. However if you know your pines this is a once in a very long time chance to own a beautiful, understated but important little bonsai tree the likes of which you will not see again. Could easily be refined with some fine wiring but it's almost a shame to mess with the beautiful natural appearance of this special bonsai tree.
