One-Of-A-Kind Seiju Elm

This tree arrived at NEBG a few weeks ago. It came from a private collector and it needed a serious haircut. You can see in the pictures that the foliage is coming back nicely. 

The Seiju Elm Bonsai, scientifically known as Ulmus parvifolia 'Seiju,' is a captivating and popular bonsai variety that combines a dwarfed, compact size with the characteristic features of Chinese Elm (Ulmus parvifolia). This bonsai is celebrated for its charming appearance and suitability for both beginners and experienced enthusiasts. 

Note: This tree is growing as a deciduous - it's cold hardy. 

The Seiju Elm boasts small, elliptical to ovate leaves with serrated edges, which are bright green in color. The leaves create a lush, dense canopy, contributing to the bonsai's attractive appearance.

Seiju Elm Bonsais naturally exhibit a dwarfed growth habit, making them an ideal choice for bonsai cultivation. The branches are well-proportioned and gracefully arching, providing an elegant overall structure.

The trunk of the Seiju Elm Bonsai typically features a textured and mottled appearance, with patches of reddish-brown and gray. Over time, the bark may become more textured and rugged, adding to the tree's character.

Seiju Elm Bonsais are deciduous, shedding their leaves in the fall, which can reveal the intricate branching structure and bark. In spring, new leaves emerge, creating a fresh canopy of green.


In summary, the Seiju Elm Bonsai is a delightful representation of nature's beauty in miniature form. Its dwarfed stature, graceful foliage, and balanced structure make it an excellent choice for bonsai lovers of all skill levels.
