The Fuji cherry is one of the most beautiful of all the myriad varieties in this vast genus. A deciduous variety it lends itself to bonsai training. The tree has beautiful fine twigging that has a nice zig-zag form, the leaves are small and best of all the tree flowers profusely in early spring. In a good year this prunus will also make a great display of autumn colour. A pretty plant that will grow like wildfire if put in the ground for two or three years and will make a nice big trunk. Fully frost hardy this variety will do well in a bright warm spot over summer when it should be watered well. An excellent introduction to growing bonsai outdoors.

Our current stock are BY FAR the largest of these we have seen and will make beautiful bonsai with just a prune and a little wire. The base of these plants and some of the trunk is burried a little in the pot. As far as we can see they are all single trunk, twin trunk or clump style bonsai with good sized trunks and will look great given a hard prune and transfered into a pot next spring. A superb opportunity to get hold of a beautiful flowering cherry of a good size.

The trees we have in stock are extremely similar to the one pictured but can vary. Sorry but at this low price we cannot photograph individual trees.
