Flowering Horseflesh Mahogany Bonsai Tree (Lysiloma Sabicu)

Flowering Horseflesh Mahogany Bonsai Tree (Lysiloma Sabicu)


The Lysiloma Sabicu, also known as the Flowering Horseflesh Mahogany, is a large, evergreen tree native to the Bahamas. Its rustic, scaly bark matures into a captivating grayish-cinnamon hue, while its leaves, rounded at the tip, contribute to its medium growth rate.

This bonsai tree boasts small leaves, delicate Powder-Puff flowers, and rustic bark. It's a deciduous tree, shedding its leaves around December and remaining dormant until the end of February. However, as a tropical species, its roots should not be worked on during this period.

The bark of this bonsai is a rough grey-brown, breaking into long, uneven strips. The leaves are a rich dark green, with pale green undersides. Dense white powder-puff flowers bloom in early summer and throughout the year, accompanied by 3-4" brown fruit pods with a slight twist.

This 28-year-old bonsai tree, measuring 18" x 17" x 27" tall, is potted in a 14" brown oval mica container. A suitable humidity/drip tray is recommended and can be added at a small additional cost.
