Prunus tomentosa. Extremely rare prunus in bonsai cultivation, this is the first example we have seen. 

Treat tomentosa exactly as any other prunus species (blackthorn). Beautiful pink flowers very early in the year long before it's leaves emerge and is one of the first harbingers of spring. As it ages prunus develops beautiful black cracked bark. Flowering will be improved if the tree is kept pot bound, therefore only repot infrequently 3-4 year at least.

Imported from Japan spring 2018. We are pleased to be able to offer this very good quality small sized bonsai it has a fine stout trunk with good movement and a really good nebari. The tree has well placed branches and just needs the ramification building up. Makes a fantastic display of pink flowers around the end of February or early March.

10" tall above it's bonsai pot. 12" wide overall. 2.5" diameter nebari.

Planted in a glazed bonsai pot.
