Chinese Seiju Elm Bonsai Tree (Ulmus Parvifolia 'Seiju')


The Chinese Seiju Elm Bonsai Tree, native to China, Korea, and Japan, is a deciduous tree with a rounded crown, known for its elliptic, toothed, glossy, dark green leaves, mottled bark, and resistance to Dutch Elm disease. It's a dwarf cultivar, primarily used for rock gardens and bonsai, that is a type of Ulmus Parvifolia Hokkaido, featuring slightly larger leaves and a faster growth rate. Over time, if not potted, it may reach 10' tall, with its bark becoming corky with age.

This outdoor bonsai tree, aged 9 years and standing 13"-15" tall, has been grown and trained in the upright ball style.

A suitable humidity/drip tray is recommended and can be added at a small additional cost.

During late summer (August), the tree may be shipped with mature, turning and transitioning foliage, a normal, annual process as the tree prepares for dormancy. It may also be shipped with no foliage during autumn and winter, but the tree will emerge from dormancy and re-grow foliage in early Spring.
