Privet Flowering Bonsai Tree

Ligustrum Ovalfolium is native to Japan. Semi-evergreen and fully hardy. Probably the easiest and most forgiving species for bonsai cultivation available anywhere. Likes full sun or partial shade, loads of water and fertilizer and regular re-potting into a fairly close and moisture retentive soil. Train with wire at any time. Prune new shoots back to 3 leaves before the new growth begins to harden at the base. Attractive sprays of white flowers in late spring once mature.

This large privet was, for decades, part of a massive forest planting we obtained with a private collection. The group was just too big to move being over 6' wide and was also poorly assembled so Graham decided to seperate the group into individual parts and save what was good overall. From what we know this lovely old tree has spent between 30 and 40 years growing as bonsai. An unusual tree with a lot of styling and development options to explore. Photographed showing autumn colour before leaf drop.

22" tall above it's pot. 18" wide overall.

Planted in a glazed stoneware bonsai pot.
