Sometimes confused with Japanese Elm, this beautiful tree can be distinguished from its relative (called Zelkova) by its winged fruits and double-toothed serrated leaves, as opposed to the Japanese Elm’s single-toothed leaves and wingless fruit. Ulmus parvifolia is a native of Korea, China, and Taiwan, and makes a great tree for a first-timer. Said to be “almost impossible to kill”, the species is favored among enthusiasts because of this hardiness, as well as for its visually attractive features.
The foliage is made up of small, shiny leaves that turn colors and fall off the tree if permitted to experience the normal change of seasons. Indoors the tree simply remains evergreen. The leaves take well to reduction and fine ramification is easy to develop. Chinese Elm is forgiving of minor watering errors and is extremely cold-hardy, tolerating temperatures to 20° F. With a potential lifespan of over 100 years, this bonsai may very well outlive you!
