Flowering Horseflesh Mahogany Large Bonsai Tree (Lysiloma Sabicu)

Flowering Horseflesh Mahogany Large Bonsai Tree (Lysiloma Sabicu)


The Lysiloma, a large, evergreen tree native to the Bahamas, is a sight to behold. Its rustic, scaly bark matures into a captivating grayish-cinnamon hue, while its leaves, rounded at the tips, add to its charm. This bonsai tree, with its small leaves, petite Powder-Puff flowers, and rustic bark, is a perfect addition to any indoor space.

The tree's bark is a unique grey-brown, breaking into long, uneven strips. Its leaves are a rich dark green, with pale green undersides. The tree bursts into a spectacle of dense white powder-puff flowers in early summer and sporadically throughout the year. Adding to its allure are the brown fruit pods that grow 3-4" with a slight twist.

This bonsai tree is 15 years old and stands 18" tall. It's a deciduous tree, shedding all of its leaves around December and remaining dormant until the end of February. However, it's important to note that the roots should not be worked on during this period as it is a tropical tree.

A suitable humidity/drip tray is recommended for the best care of this bonsai tree, which can be added at a small additional cost.
