Hokkaido

Hokkaido

This tiny leaf elm is the perfect plant for Bonsai and the small garden, growing to only 12" tall and 16"-20" wide in 10 years. The trunk will become thick and corky rather quickly, and within 5 years, start to become old and heavily textured. The leaves are only 1/8" long and are congested along the dark brown stems. For Bonsai, pruning is necessary to develop a good specimen, and wiring is difficult. This plant cannot tolerate poor drainage, or drought conditions either. Also, a full sun site is preferable to shady. A worthwhile cultivar to collect.
