The Japanese elm is a deciduous tree with a distinctly upright habit. The branches create a wide and beautifully-shaped arc. This tree is heavily favoured for use in the art of bonsai, and it is particularly suited to the broom style.
Care tips - This tree is grown outdoors in a sunny aspect. If exposed to hot afternoon sun, leaf-burn will occur. If intense sun cannot be avoided, the use of some form of screening device is advisable. This tree must be given protection in areas where frost poses a threat.
