Styrax Flowering Bonsai Tree
Styrax japonicus - commonly called the Japanese snowbell, is a species of flowering plant in the family Styracaceae, native to China, Japan and Korea. It is a graceful, spreading deciduous tree with small oval, upward-facing leaves which occasionally turn yellow or orange before falling in autumn. Masses of slightly fragrant, bell-shaped white flowers hang from the branches in summer, followed by fruits (drupes) which resemble olives in both shape and colour.
It is frost hardy down to −15 °C (5 °F), but prefers a sheltered position in full sun or dappled shade, with acid or neutral soil.
Styrax are like hens teeth, very rare we have had no more than a couple in the last thirty years. This nice little tree has just arrived from Japan. A nice clean trunk and good basic branch structure that can be built upon in the coming seasons. A very nice bonsai with a great future in the right hands.
