I recently purchased about 16 bonsai and pre bonsai from someone taking a break from the hobby. Most of them were easy to identify but one of them even he didn't know. Apparently it was bought from someone in Louisiana and has a large stump of deadwood with one long branch near the bottom. The...
Hi there, I am brand new to the bonsai world and recently got my first bonsai tree as a birthday gift. Unfortunately I had to go away and left my housemates minding it and I've now returned to it wilting! Any help identifying the tree type and how to save it would be much appreciated!! Here are...
Hello I have been lurking on the forum reading information for a while but never posted. Until I found these guys wondering if anyone can confirm what it is as the plaque on this park tree is blank (interesting foreign maples in canada area) from weathering..they were only 2 growing next to each...
Hi all! 😊
I got a bonsai tree for my birthday from my brother but he said the shop assistant couldn’t tell what kind of bonsai tree it was. Could any of you guys help me out with identifying it please? Would mean a lot. Also open to tips on how to keep it and care for it but I will do the...
I have seen multiple websites claim theyre the same, and Ive seen multiple websites claim theyre different and also sell them separately. What gives? Also believe Ive seen it spelled "coreana". Need expert advice.
This does not look like the tridents I had (I killed them...). The leaves on mine were kinda boring maple like in shape, dunno how to describe it.
Anyone know if this is a named cultivar, or have any other trident maple cultivar recommendations?
Look at what I found in a planter. Those are centimeters, not inches. Anyone guess the cultivar name? Cause I have no idea. The plant was about 1.4 meters tall, with very low graft union if any. Trunk was maybe 7cm diameter, from memory.
I found a few small deciduous trees with alternating nodes in the forest, and I dont know what it is but would like to find out more and check if its suitable for bonsai. This is what the leaves look like from above and below. I didnt have my phone with me so I just took a leaf, thats all the...
This is going to be a wall of text, some I'm going to get a TLDR; out of the way first.
Am a newbie to bonsai with way too much free time of late, have spent the past couple weeks doing naught but researching information about making bonsai from seedlings & how best to care for maple...
It’s in my yard and spreads easily. Looks 100 yrs old in less than 20. I thought it was a wild plum but now I’m thinking crabapple maybe. Let me know what you think! I’m in southwest FL for reference on location. Either way if it has decent roots I’m tempted to collect at least one. I have several.
Just picked this little up at Walmart this morning. It didn’t have a name tag on it but for the price I could t pass it up. If anyone could help me identify it so I can tack care of the way it needs would be very helpful
I have no idea what this monster tree is but it’s deciduous here in the UK. There’s not much to identify it by, just the bark but I’m sure someone out there knows!
Thanks for the future replies!
Hello- I am new to this forum and a very new fan of bonsai. A friend of mine recently gave me this plant because she no longer wanted it. She did not know what is, but I think that it may be a wisteria plant. Can someone confirm if this seems to be correct?
I plan on removing the decorative...
I collected another juniper today that I believed was and Ashe juniper but on closer inspection I believe it is a redberry juniper. The foliage looks a bit different and the bark is definitely not as dark as Ashe juniper. If anyone can verify ID I would appreciate it! Either way it’s a great...
Hello again! I'm very excited to announce I have purchased another bonsai (maybe I should wait a little longer to make sure I'm sticking with this hobby?... Nah). I actually feel pretty proud of this one, because I've seen similar trees online sell for more. Obviously I'm sure there is a quality...
I’ve seen a lot of threads in which people have uncertainty of tree identification based on bud appearance. Here are some good photos from my yard to help folks. Unless noted these are all mature buds from the fall.
If you contribute to this thread then please use enough keywords that people...
I bought a pine from a local nursery, however the label said just 'pine'.
Anyone got an idea what kind of pine this is exactly.
It's a two needle pine.
Maybe the visible cone can provide the necessary info?
And while we at it; any ideas for a design?
There are 4 big, beautiful maple trees on my new property. Hoping for help identifying them, please? All pics were taken this month, and all of these trees are at least 40 years old
(Hoping to start some air layers in the spring.)
Maple #1 -- Leaves are all deep red in the spring, and as...
I purchased this tree earlier this summer from a woman on Craigslist. She couldn't remember which type of Japanese Maple it was. What do you think it is?
Thanks in advance :)
Attached are pictures of: newly opened leaves; whole tree; mature leaf
I purchased a couple of cotoneasters, "Tom Thumb" and "Little Dipper". The first thing I did when I got them home was to rip the tags off. (I know, kind of dumb.) One has smaller leaves than the other but I do not remember which is which. Can someone please help?
I'm new to bonsai trees and have no experience with them whatsoever. My father just brought me home this bonsai and I'm trying to look up some information on care etc. However I have no idea what kind of tree it is, there was no tag or anything with it just the price and 'small bonsai'...
