This Kojo-No-Mai variety is by far the best flowering naturally in a zig zag pattern. The small white blooms appear before any foliage. The white bark and small dark green foliage look nice all summer. Sadly; state agricultural regulations prohibit us from shipping these trees to California.Ideal with 8" Humidity Tray
Outdoor bonsai include evergreen varieties like pines and junipers as well as deciduous varieties like maples and elms. All outdoor bonsai are hardy and require seasonal change. Upon receiving your bonsai, it is best to acclimate it in a shady area for one week. All outdoor bonsai prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. Patios, decks and balconies are great areas to display your bonsai during the growing season. Outdoor bonsai can be displayed indoors, but only for short periods of time. You should never leave your bonsai inside for more than five days.
Watering properly is critical to maintaining a healthy bonsai! Outdoor bonsai are watered according to the season. Outdoor bonsai should be watered daily in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter you will not need to water as frequently. However, you should never let your bonsai’s soil dry out. Water your bonsai properly by using a watering can or hose attachment that has a fine-spray nozzle. You should thoroughly soak your bonsai’s soil. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but should not be considered watering. General care is also important to maintaining a beautiful bonsai. Bonsai should be periodically trimmed to keep their miniature shape. To best understand trimming and wiring techniques, we recommend purchasing an instructional book.
Your bonsai will need to be repotted every four to five years. It is necessary to repot your bonsai when its root system becomes pot bound. Repotting outdoor bonsai should be done before new growth appears during late winter or early spring. Make sure you are using a good bonsai soil when repotting since regular potting soil will compact and inhibit proper drainage. We recommend waiting at least one growing season before repotting your bonsai to make sure it is well established.
Fertilizing bonsai is required. Most water-soluble and time-released fertilizers work very well when used as directed. We recommend using slow-releasing organic fertilizers for more mature specimen bonsai.
INSECTS & DISEASES
Insects and diseases can attack bonsai just like any other plant. Inspect your bonsai regularly. A brisk spraying of the trunk and foliage periodically will help keep your tree clean. If any problems appear, most garden centers have products available for treatment.
Outdoor bonsai need to experience winter dormancy and should remain outdoors in the winter. Nevertheless, the root systems of outdoor bonsai need protection from extreme winter weather. You should “Heel-In” your bonsai by covering the pot and soil with pine needles or mulch when temperatures approach freezing. We also recommend protecting your bonsai from extremely cold winds by placing it against the south side of your house. In areas that have extremely cold winters, bonsai can be protected in garages, sheds, cold frames or basements. Contact a local bonsai club for more advice.
Rest assured that your tree will reach its destination well hydrated and securely packed. The base of each tree is wrapped in plastic to retain moisture and to prevent any topsoil from spilling during shipment. Trees are wired to the pot, placed inside a double-walled carton for protection and secured with proprietary packing systems to keep them from shifting during transit.

Unfortunately when tree arrived, wrap on pot was kind of loose snd soil was on the dryer side. Leaves were scorched due to heat and lack of moisture. Took it out and water it, at this point tree seems to be recovering putting new growth.

Received my new tree very quickly and in excellent shape. Packaging was very good and soil protection was also good. Tree was very healthy with some new growth, especially on the crown. Has adapted well to my climate. Only issue I had with the tree is it looks like someone ironed the tree flat and growth only on three sides of the tree. Hopefully something will bud out on the bare side soon.

Not too good honestly
So I bought it in July as a birthday present, it came not looking at all what the picture is, but a white pot and two trunks, which was nice. one thing that did annoy me is that there was lots of holes and when emailing them they responded there was a small beetle, but why send the worst looking one? And like all BB it's was over filled with fertilizer at the wrong season and the tree also suffers bad heat shock, on top of this the fertilizer is causing chemical damage as shown by the leaves. I emailed someone and they told me wait 3 weeks and the tree should be ok.

This plant was purchased for me for Fathers Day. When it arrived it had several broken branches, but more importantly had evidence of insect damage. Many of the leaves had multiple tiny holes like lace. I have separated it from my other plants and sprayed it with insect soap. Very disappointing

Bonsai arrived quickly and in good condition. Brussell's Bonsai really packages their plants very well. No tree damage and dwarf cherry looks healthy and the soil was not dry upon arrival. Really happy with my purchase.

This little tree is pretty and thriving so far. It arrived in excellent condition and is just finishing leafing out. I'll be interested to see it's blooms next year.
