Zelkova or Japanese Elm as it is better known is a deciduous tree with a lovely upright habit. The bright green, pointed leaves have attractive toothed edges. This species is widely grown as a bonsai specimen, prized for its flaking bark and attractive arching crown. Bonsai trees make a fascinating feature for a cool, bright room or conservatory. During the summer months they can be enjoyed on the patio outdoors. Bonsai Zelkova is supplied with a ceramic pot and saucer (colour may vary). Height and spread: 30cm (12").
Please note: These trees have been carefully trained to create perfect miniatures of their full size siblings. Although many of the species used are perfectly hardy in the UK, these tiny trees are more susceptible to winter damage, given their size and the small volume of soil surrounding their roots. Therefore they are best protected from frost and cold winter weather by moving them to a cool, bright spot in your home or greenhouse.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
