We remember exactly what it was like. You're new to the world of bonsai and eager to jump in. But you still have a few questions and the answers are hard to come by. Take a look at our new education community.
The Chinese Elm is one of the most popular bonsai trees, especially among beginners. It is an ideal choice for those just starting out. This native of China, Japan, and Korea is a hardy tree that can be kept indoors or out, with minimal shelter. And because it is slow-growing and tolerant, the Chinese Elm allows beginners plenty of time and forgiveness to grow accustomed to bonsai care.
This tree's trunk has a gorgeous swaying shape that supports a full, lush canopy of foliage.åÊ It looks like a Bonsai should: a miniature version of an age-old tree.åÊ
The Chinese Elm has small, dark green leathery leaves with blunt teeth. It has a highly predictable growth pattern, which is again good news for beginners. You won't need to be an expert pruner to care for a Chinese Elm.
A ceramic pot chosen to compliment the Chinese Elm Bonsai is included with your order, along with a bonsai care guide to help you maintain the health of your tree.
Every bonsai is unique, and so we provide care instructions written for the unique requirements of your bonsai tree. While training a bonsai tree may be a bit more challenging than caring for a common house plant, it by no means requires a sophisticated “green thumb.” Following a few simple guidelines can make for a healthy bonsai tree and happy owner.
We are experts who want to guarantee that you receive a healthy and happy tree. The Bonsai Outlet is a family-owned business with only your satisfaction in mind. We love bonsai, and we want you to love them, too.

The Chinese Elm arrived well packaged and protected. I got it out and was happy to see that it was very healthy looking and lush. Also it matchedbthebappearance I expected for its age. It arrived in March looking like it was used to summer so I am keeping it indoors for a few weeks because I am not sure it is ready for cold weather. Otherwise a perfect Chinese Elm Bonsai. I look forward to many years of enjoyment.

This tree actually looks batter than pictured. It already has a ton of new growth and I have only had it for a week. The shape of this tree is awesome and it has made a very good addition to my collection. I have purchased several trees from these guys and have yet to be disappointed.
