Buddhist pine Bonsai
The Yew Pine, or Podocarpus macrophyllus, may not be a traditional looking bonsai but it still enjoys ample popularity. The slow-growing native of Japan and China has a unique, elegant look that seems to induce peaceful feelings simply by laying eyes on it. While the foliage appears to be made up of needles, they are actually very narrow, leathery, flat leaves approximately two inches long. The trunk is a gorgeous cinnamon shade, and bears the gentle curvature so desirable in bonsai.

- Wanted a starter bonsai that is a good conversation piece
Overall Rating Quality ValueDabbled in bonsai off and on over the last 25 years. Really my main success has been in keeping of Japanese Serissa. Wanted a couple of plants I haven't worked with before that were inexpensive enough for me to play with until I understand it better. I was very satisfied with this tree. It arrived healthy, was easily re-potted, and they crafted it into a very nice "open canvas" which I can put my own spin on. Would definitely buy from them again. Thanks!
