The Chinese Elm (Ulmus parvifolia) makes a truly beautiful bonsai tree and can be grown in or outdoors.
The leaves are slightly serrated, are small and are bright to deep green. This is the perfect representation of a woodland tree as it has an excellent twig structure and has great character throughout. In our opinion the Chinese Elm is the most perfectly proportioned, easy to care for and adaptable tree and makes a superb bonsai. A must have bonsai for anyone and absolutely perfect for beginners. This is a fabulous tree for learn pruning, styling & potting techniques because it is fast growing with back buds quickly forming lovely dense foliage pads.
