Juniperus procumbens 'Nana'
Junipers are traditional beginner bonsai, and for good reason. They are easy to take care of and don’t mind being the guinea pigs for newbie mistakes. This evergreen conifer, Juniperus procumbens ‘Nana’, comes from the mountainous island regions in southern Japan, and may also be endemic to China and Korea. It is a strangely low-growing shrub in nature, measuring up at just eight inches. As a bonsai tree, however, your plant can be trained up much taller, and shaped into a variety of beautiful forms.
The tight, dark green to bluish-green foliage and textured, aged-looking bark make the juniper a fascinating subject for the art-form. You’ll want to dig right in and get to trimming and training to make this tree your own. This specimen comes in an attractive rock pot which perfectly complements the juniper’s coloring and rustic charm. With this beautiful, easy to grow tree there’s no reason to be intimidated by bonsai anymore – go ahead, get started!

- Very nice!
Overall Rating Quality ValueTree is very nicely trained, arrived in great condition with thick foliage showing vigorous growth. Once all the packing peanuts are removed, it could be proudly displayed at once. Does not look exactly like example picture, but equally good sinuous upright shape, nice trunk dimensions. Well worth the price.
Pot is okay, looks good enough. It is hollow with deep "undercut" on sides, so may be difficult to remove tree after a few years of root growth, I may have to sacrifice pot when that time comes.
