Picked up this Seiju Elm from a local nursery last fall - it was neglected in a back corner and well priced as a result. Chopped back pretty harshly and repotted into a (too) large bonsai pot. These bud out profusely everywhere, so put on a good number of branches over the year - just wired it...
This is a little seiju elm. It’s 11” tall at the tallest branch. Trunk is 5.5” tall. Bought in April 2019 from a nursery as a shrub. Thought about hedging this because of the growth habit but decided I did not want a chia pet on my bench. Potentially be a shohin but I’m less concerned about size...
This is my Seiju, I've had it for about two years and I made the first cuts on it this past winter. It was purchased from the Muranaka nursery in Nipomo, CA. It was propagated from a root cutting about 5 years prior to my ownership.

Gifted to me. Nice potential. No real plans at moment.. maybe going to develop as a flat topped acacia styled tree with some flat pads. Will see.

Pot sucks. Needs a new pot.
