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.
Graham collected this privet a few years ago and it's been coming along nicely ever since. A massive privet with a hollow trunk and spectacular proportions and a beautiful example of this classic style. A HUGE trunk and very compact branch structure with lots of deadwood, a real head turner. Time spent building up the ramificaion of this tree will be well rewarded as it ages it'll just get better and better.
Planted in a high quality unglazed stoneware bonsai pot.
