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.

Yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria) – medium size. Height: 15 inches; Width: 17 inches. Pot size 10.5 X 2.75 Round; Pot origin: Dick Ryerson, California. Trunk diameter at the base: 3 inches. Popular name: Yaupon holly. Native of South-East United states, this small tree was used by the Native Americans to make tea for certain ceremonies. The Europeans incorrectly assumed that the tea caused vomiting, hence the name. Vomiting was part of the purification ceremony, but it was NOT caused by the tea. Did you know that this is the only plant native to North America, that contains caffeine? Yaupon holly is dioecious, meaning that there are male, and female individuals, based on the flowers they bear. This plant has male flowers. Right now, it is covered with small white flowers, with yellow center. The owner tore up the hedge on his front-yard, and trashed the whole thing, to replace it with new plants. I picked it up, it was dry and roots exposed. Wasn’t sure whether or not it was dead or alive. Luckily, it came back to life, and after working on it for 13 years, this is how it looks. This is a finished bonsai, if there is ever one. All the structure is set, down to the fine ramification. It has one wire, to adjust the angle of one branch, but it should come off this year. The overall silhouette can be modified, to the taste of the new owner. It is one of my favorite trees. I was planning to keep it for my permanent collection, but I realized that if I want to create more and more new trees (and I have more than I can count, coming up), I cannot keep everybody. Time is limited, and every tree I maintain, takes away time from the ones that are coming up behind. But it’s a special tree, and needs an owner who can appreciate the character and strength of this little tree, and knows how to take care of it. Please send me a message if you are interested. 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. The couriers do cover the value.

Spiny hackberry bonsai Celtis spinosa Tala Medium size


Spiny hackberry bonsai Celtis spinosa Tala Medium size



Popular Name: Spiny Hackberry. Native from southern United States, to Argentina. Height from soil: 15 inches. Diameter at trunk base: 2.25 inches. Extremely rare bonsai species. I have never seen exhibited anywhere in California, in the past 20 years. I grew it from a seedling originated from a botanical garden in Los Angeles. It has mature bark, nice ramification. This is a semi-deciduous species in Southern California. The pictures show the tree in October, before it goes semi-dormant in late fall and winter. It has tiny leaves, and the branches naturally have lots of movement. The major wiring is already finished, the branches are set. Additional fine wiring would be needed for a more manicured look. The pot has its own story. I got it from Roy Nagatoshi. A well known bonsai master in Sylmar, Calfornia. He was the consultant for the bonsai trees in the original Karate Kid movie. Roy did not want to sell this pot, he said that it was one of the pots used in the movie. But I convinced him after all. I love this pot, it has a very unique design. I only have a limited number of this species. Once I sell a few, they will not be available.

Spiny hackberry bonsai Celtis spinosa Tala Medium size


Spiny hackberry bonsai Celtis spinosa Tala Medium size



Popular Name: Spiny Hackberry. Native from southern United States, to Argentina. Height from soil: 17 inches. Diameter at trunk base: 2.75 inches. Pot: 10″ x 6.75″ x 2 origin unknown. Extremely rare bonsai species. I have never seen exhibited anywhere in California, in the past 20 years. I grew it from a seedling originated from a botanical garden in Los Angeles. It has mature bark, nice ramification. This is a semi-deciduous species in Southern California. The pictures show the tree in October, before it goes semi-dormant in late fall and winter. It has tiny leaves, and the branches naturally have lots of movement. The main feature of this tree is the perfectly tapered, straight trunk. Once the fine foliage fills out the space in-between, this tree will make the impression of a stately, tall tree growing alone, in a park. It will look spectacular, but it needs another two seasons of fine pruning, to achieve that look. The base of the trunk is perfect from every angle. I only have a limited number of this species. Once I sell a few, they will not be available. The item “Spiny hackberry bonsai Celtis spinosa Tala Medium size” is in sale since Monday, November 5, 2018.
