Chinese Elm Bonsai Tree
Ulmus parvifolia. Chinese elm are probably the best and most robust species used for Bonsai. The small oval serrated edge leaves are perfectly in proportion and the tree makes wonderful tight and fine twigging within just a few growing seasons. Very vigorous and hardy outdoors in most areas. We recommend keeping Chinese Elm Bonsai outside where temperatures do not drop lower than -6 Celsius. If kept outside the tree will lose most of it's leaves in winter thus displaying it's lovely fine ramification. Trees kept outside also develop incredible flaking bark after a few years. Prefer to be cool over the winter if kept indoors.
Keep in full sun to partial shade all year round. Water and feed very well. Re-pot every year if you want to maintain vigorous growth. Once fully mature re-pot every second year.
We recently stumbled upon a few of these impressive large trunk Chinese elm and bought the lot. Nice heavy trunk trees relative to their overall size. Mature branch structure and dense ramification. Ripe for some structural pruning in order to further develop their shape and appearance. In the past we have had elms like this that are normally priced above £240. Pictures show the trees in winter after partial leaf drop. May have some minor wire marks and pruning scars but these are of little consequence on Chinese elm which can fatten rapidly if cultivated correctly. The best value Chinese elm we are likely to see, we won't be repeating this offer again.
