Caucasian Hackberry (Celtis caucasica) bonsai medium to large size



Caucasian hackberry bonsai – medium to large size. Height: 21 inches; Width: 24 inches. Pot size 11.5 X 8.5 X 2.75 Pot origin: Dick Ryerson, Los Angeles potter. Trunk diameter at the base: 5 inches. Popular name: Caucasian Hackberry, Caucasia Nettle Tree. The natural forests of this species grow in the woodlands of South-East Europe (from Bulgaria, through Turkey, Afghanistan) and all the way to the Northern Himalayas. It’s a long-lived, medium size tree, with lush, round crown. According to some sources, it can live past 1,000 years. Eventually, it can reach 20 meters (60 feet) in height. The tree can withstand heat, as well as cold winters. But it needs a lot of sun, regardless of temperature. A gloomy climate, with no sun, is not ideal. In the fall, before the leaves drop, they display a beautiful, clear yellow color. Just like many other species I have, I collected the seedlings of this species from the Los Angeles County Arboretum, in the late 90’s. So, as far as I know, nobody has exhibited this species in California. I may be the only one who grows them, for all I know. They are wonderful bonsai subjects, easy to grow, and very vigorous. They grow constantly in the growing season, so it can be achieved a lot, in a single year. The primary structure of the tree is already set. All you need to do, is to work on the foliage pads, and the silhouette. The tree has a few thin wires, on some of the fine foliage. It has a very powerful root-base, and lower trunk. For the future, I envision a full, and more round crown. It can be done in no more than two years. This is a unique chance to acquire this species, that is extremely rare in bonsai culture. I will have 3 more that may be for sale in the future, and the rest will stay in my private collection. Please send me a message if you are interested. The tree is too large for mailing. So, if you live no further than Salt Lake City, Ut, or Meford, OR, or the South-West of the USA, I can take it to you, for the price of the gas.
