Field Elm Yamadori Bonsai Material
Ulmus minor. Sometimes called ulmus campestris (latin meaning flat/level ground or plains ie: field). This polymorphic elm is a widespread European variety from which English elm (ulmus procera) was derived. To the untrained eye these are pretty much the same and in a bonsai context can be treated in exactly the same way as procera.
Field elm 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. 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.
Early days yet but this elm has great potential with it's incredible craggy old bark and good nebari. Possibility to reduce the height to make a crazy short fat bonsai. Some carving (hollow out most of the trunk?) and wiring over next winter (in the right hands) will deliver an impressive bonsai within a couple of years at the rate these elms grow.
27" tall above it's pot. 26" wide overall. 11" diameter nebari.
