Bonsai Starter - Dwarf Tree Collection

  • We have carefully curated a collection of our dwarf trees which would be perfect as bonsai's. 

  • The Bonsai Starter Dwarf Tree Collection contains one of each plant in either an 8cm or 9cm pot.

  • Cretan Maple - Acer sempervirens (10-15cm tall): A semi-evergreen or evergreen small tree or large shrub, this is a great maple for small gardens, for the patio or bonsai. The Cretan Maple is one of the most drought- and heat-tolerant species in the genus, occurring on dry, sunny hillsides at moderate elevations. It is often a shrubby tree with smaller, evergreen, leathery, glossy dark green leaves. The bark on the Cretan Maple is dark grey, smooth in young trees, becoming scaly and shallowly fissured in mature trees. The new leaves have a distinctive, reddish colour. A slow growing species, rarely offered.

  • New Zealand Myrtle (Rohutu) - Lophomyrtus obcordata (15cm tall, branched): It is a densely branched, elegant, dwarf like shrub from Australia. It has decorative, green- yellow, purple foliage with tiny leaves all year round. During the Summer, 1cm wide myrtle like, fragrant, white flowers bloom. Later on in the year, Lophomyrtus obcordata produces edible black berries. Hardy to temperatures as low as -10C.

  • Dwarf Kowhai - Sophora cassioides (6-8cm tall seedling): A small, evergreen shrub originating from New Zealand. It is a slow growing plant that makes a great addition to the patio or as a bonsai meaning it is perfect for the smallest of gardens. The Dwarf Kowhai has zig-zag branching, yellow stems and exfoliating bark. In the late Spring, large pea-like flowers of a brownish yellow are produced and borne either in clusters of 2-3 or singly. After flowering, long narrow beans appear on the shrub. During the Winter, the plant receives great interest after the foliage has dropped off as it reveals its quirky branches and stems.
