Yamadori Cherry Plum Bonsai Material - Prunus Cerasifera
Cherry plum is a broadleaf deciduous tree native to south-east Europe and western Asia, but has naturalised in the UK. To the untrained eye this prunus could easily be mistaken for Blackthorn, Prunus spinosa. The most obvious difference being cerasiferas 's new growth shows red stems whereas spinosa is green. Otherwise the leaf form is about the same as are the flowers. The primary difference between cerasifera and spinosa we have noted is that the former grows at about twice the rate and does not mind root disturbance at re-potting time. Perfectly at home in the UK climate treat this prunus exactly as you would blackthorn.
A MASSIVE prunus now very well established, this big tree was roughly shaped with a little wire over last winter. Some carving was also started and this can be progressed over winter. There is a quite amazing bonsai waiting to be uncovered here, at least that's what Graham says. There is obviously some way to go but at the speed these trees grow it won't take long to turn out a very presentable bonsai tree.
