It started it's journey as a tropical at our nursery in Florida. However, it spent the last year at our Massachusetts nursery, re-adapting itself as a deciduous tree. Chinese Elm love to be outdoors and they tend to do better as cold hardy - deciduous in non-tropical regions.
Chinese Elm is one of the most popular bonsai trees, especially among beginners. These lovely semi-evergreen trees can grow up to 65 feet tall in their native habitat, but have been cultivated in miniature form for Bonsai for generations.
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. 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.
This gem has branches in all the right places. Intentionally left unpruned for you to work with. Depending on when it sells, the tree may need a haircut.
The tree measures 16" tall, from the soil to top of tree
