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.
A powerful multi trunk field elm collected in Spain. Graham roughed this out last winter and bare rooted at the same time so it sulked a bit last summer but it's now growing strongly again. A superb craggy old tree that's just getting better and better every year. Still room for improvement and refinement but a distinctive classic in the making. A fantastic bonsai at a bargain price.
25" tall above it's pot. 24" wide overall. 14" diameter nebari.
