The Dwarf Princess Elm is a real miniature garden tree with a growth rate of 1 to 2 inches per year. Combine the tiniest of leaves with the most delicate branches, and you have a special gem for the miniature garden.
This tree is fragile. The cork-like wood breaks easily if you are creating a garden for children.
Note that this tree is deciduous - It has dropped its leaves for the winter and will come back once the weather warms up in spring.
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.
**Jan.'23 - Trunks are much thicker than the tree shown in the middle photo. Leaves have dropped for the winter, of course.**
