Brush cherry (Syzygium)

Brush cherry bonsai (Syzygium buxifolium or Eugenia buxifolia) are well suited to bonsai styling due to their numerous, eye-catching flowers and small leaves. If possible, a brush cherry should be kept outside in summer. In winter, a very bright, not too warm location is recommended. Brush cherries are suitable as indoor bonsai. With sufficient light, bonsai care is not difficult.

Care in a nutshell

Wiring: Be very careful when applying bonsai wire. Brush cherry bonsai have thin, sensitive bark. Wire marks can be seen for a long time

Fertilising: From March to September, fertilise regularly with a commercially available bonsai fertilizer (Biogold, Hanagokoro). As Brush cherry bonsai prefer a slightly acidic soil, a fertiliser for azalea bonsai is also suitable

Watering: Do not allow a Brush cherry bonsai to dry out completely and do not keep it too wet. Even soil moisture is ideal

Pruning: Do not prune from the end of April until after flowering, otherwise you will remove too many flower buds. For the rest of the growing season, prune the crown with sharp bonsai scissors as required

Overwintering: Overwinter the trees very bright light and as cool to cold as possible. Brush cherry bonsai tolerate temperatures down to 4°C well

Repotting: Repot every 3-4 years at the beginning of March in a well-drained bonsai soil. Akadama pure or with a third of Kanuma bonsai soil mixed in is suitable
