It is an ideal choice for those just starting out because it is slow-growing and tolerant, the Chinese Elm allows beginners plenty of time and forgiveness to grow accustomed to bonsai care making it one of the most loved and most undemanding of miniature trees.
Chinese Elms are typically imported from Asia as tropical trees. If you live in a cold northern state, we believe they are much easier to care for as deciduous trees. From spring to fall they are kept outdoors. from late fall to early spring, they are kept dormant in an unheated shelter (cold frame, bulkhead, unheated garage or shed).
The Deciduous Chinese Elm Bonsai Tree (Ulmus parvifolia) is a graceful and adaptable miniature representation of its larger counterpart. This bonsai features small, serrated green leaves that transform into a vibrant display of reds, oranges, and yellows during the fall, creating a stunning seasonal spectacle. Its finely ramified branches and elegant, smooth bark contribute to its aesthetic appeal. Resilient and easy to care for, the Deciduous Chinese Elm Bonsai is a symbol of strength, endurance, and natural beauty in the art of bonsai cultivation.
It's important to note that Chinese Elm can defoliate themselves after shipping. That's normal and the foliage grows back within a couple weeks.
