Description of this bonsai
50 years old Ezo spruce pine in a bonsai pot. This tree is approx. 74cm high and was imported from a japanese bonsai nursery.
The Ezo spruce (also called Dark-bark spruce, Hondo spruce, Yezo spruce, botanical Picea jezoensis hondoensis, also Picea yezoensis, Japanese Ezo Matsu, Chinese Yu lin yunshan, family pines - pinaceae) is the most popular spruce species for bonsai and rare in Europe.
The Ajan spruce grows very slowly. The Hondo subspecies has extremely short needles. This makes Picea jezoensis hondoensis particularly suitable for the design of very small bonsai. The dark bark of Ezo spruce bonsai looks very decorative. In the natures it occurs in Japan, Korea, eastern Russia and northern China. The species Picea jezoensis can reach heights of more than 30m. It is closely related to Sitka spruce, often found in gardens.
As bonsai, Picea jezoensis prefers a well-drained, nutrient-rich substrate. The combination of Akadama as substrate with an organic fertilizer is well suited.
When ordering, you will always get the bonsai displayed on the picture (no. 501-08).
