Our new Spring 2021 Seedling & Pre-Bonsai catalog is now available with many great, new and rare plants. Here are a few featured plants:
Dwarf Cork-Bark Japanese Black Pine
Pinus thunbergii var. corticosa ‘Hakuro’
The Hakuro Dwarf Cork-Bark Japanese black pine forms thick corky bark that look like “wings, it is also in the ‘Yatsubusa’ grouping of dwarf plants which have multiple buds, short internodes, ability to maintain inner branching and sometimes root easily. The Cork-Bark Japanese black pine Hakuro is one of the most vigorous and easy to grow. Unlike commercially produced grafted plants, these have been carefully low grafted so the graft union is not ugly. When the corky bark develops in the lower trunk sections it will actually extend downward presenting a thicker trunk, very unusual. Corky bark is already developing on the trunks, which adds to the appearance of age. These healthy grafted plants have been grown and trimmed for bonsai. These are gnarly bushy pre-bonsai plants from 3 gal pots and 14-16” tall. The trunks are 1.5 to 2” in diameter.

This is the most famous spruce trained for bonsai in Japan and extremely difficult to find in the United States. Unfortunately, Picea jezoensis is often available and called “Ezo” spruce. It is actually Black Ezo spruce and is NOT trained for bonsai in Japan because it is too coarse in plant character. The true Ezo spruce here are young seedlings which can easily be shaped, trained as a forest or just allowed to grow to a larger size. They have been grown in a 4”pot and are 8-12” in height. Very limited in number so order early.
