Flowering Silverberry "Gumi" 

A silverberry bonsai tree is a bonsai created from the Elaeagnus species, also known as silverberry or gumi.

Here are the key points about silverberry bonsai:

  • Elaeagnus is a broadleaf, evergreen shrub native to Asia, Europe, and North America.
  • It has small, silvery-green foliage that gives it an attractive appearance as a bonsai.
  • Silverberry is considered an underutilized species for bonsai, but it can make an interesting tree with proper training and techniques.
  • The leaves may reduce in size somewhat with bonsai cultivation, but likely remain on the larger side compared to other bonsai species.
  • Defoliation can potentially help reduce leaf size over time, but this technique requires care as it stresses the tree.
  • Silverberry has a rough, gnarled trunk that develops an aged appearance, which is desirable for bonsai aesthetics.
  • It responds well to bonsai pruning and wiring techniques to shape the branches and trunk line.
  • While not considered an elite bonsai species, silverberry can still make an attractive miniature tree with its unique foliage and rugged trunk when properly trained and maintained.
