Dwarf Wisteria - Pre-Bonsai - Millettia japonica 'Hime Fuji'

Regular price $24.99

A fun tree for the miniature garden or fairy garden. Great in pots too. We find this rare gem is well very behaved and low-maintenance - unlike the full-sized variety.
The dwarf Wisteria will eventually grow into a bushy plant that maintains its miniature-look with its skinny "trunks" and in-scale foliage. 

Our dwarf Wisteria that we've been growing here at our studios for over 8 years now is still in a miniature-tree-form with it's bare legs and leafy canopy.

The leaves look like the full-sized Wisteria. Can be trimmed. Slough-off any dead branches in spring. Note that it doesn't flower but it is still cute as a button. 

Don't let it dry out completely in between watering sessions. If you are in a hot region and planting it in-ground, plant in part sun, part shade or eastern exposure, to help keep the soil evenly damp. 

**Dec./Jan. '22. - Deciduous - It's dropped its leaves for the winter but you can see the buds are really to grow when the weather warms up.**

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.
