Seiju Dwarf Lacebark Elm ~ Ulmus parvifolia 'Seiju'

Regular price $29.99

The Seiju Dwarf Lacebark Elm is an excellent candidate for bonsai but you don't have to use as a bonsai - it's perfect for miniature gardening except without all the high maintenance! Great for fairy gardens and railroad gardens too.

Slow grower, prune in late winter to slow the growth rate down even more. Deciduous, meaning it will shed it's leaves in the fall.

Prune-away any of the bottom branches to shape it into a tree-form. Keep the bottom of the trunk clear of any new growth and trim away any new, wayward top-shoots as you see them.

**The Seiju Elm is deciduous. If you are ordering in the fall & winter months, the tree will be going/gone dormant for the winter but will reward your patience with a fresh new flush of tiny leaves come springtime.
