Styrax Flowering Bonsai Tree
Styrax japonicus - commonly called 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 hardy down to −15 °C (5 °F), but prefers a sheltered position in full sun or dappled shade, with acid or neutral growing media.

Styrax are like hens teeth, very rare we have had no more than a couple in the last thirty years. This superb tree arrived from Japan in spring 2019. A beautiful clean trunk with unusual gnarly branch structure and ramification beginning to build rapidly. A very nice bonsai with a great future in the right hands.

22" tall above it's bonsai pot. 20" wide overall. 9" diameter nebari.

Planted in high quality Japanese bonsai pot.
