Shimpaku Chinese Juniper - Pre Bonsai - Juniperus chinensis 'Shimpaku'

Regular price $19.99

This tree has been groomed for "pre-bonsai" but you can plant it like a regular miniature garden tree and still enjoy it. Keep the bottom of the trunk clear of any new growth and trim away any new, wayward top shoots as you see them. As it grows, you can train the branches gradually, to make a nice little tree that will stay small with a bit of trimming throughout the growing season. 

A perfect, hardly little tree for railroad gardens too. 

The Shimpaku Juniper is prized by Bonsai artists for its peeling bark and perfect for the miniature garden. Easy grower and very hardy. Great in-ground or in containers.

Dec./Jan. 22 - This current batch is "pre-bonsai" - which means it has been grown to give you a head start for creating your own bonsai tree, the cultivars have been staked and manipulated at a young age to create early movement and unique shape. BUT it can be enjoyed as a miniature garden tree too. Just trim any wayward branches when you see them. Give it a gentle prune in late winter/early spring to keep the canopy bushy and in overall shape in-check.
