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.

This beautiful little elm has been on our nursery for a few years now and gets a regular careful prune. Nice stocky trunk, good branches and dense ramification.
