Bonsai Babies™ are some of the best seedlings to use to create a bonsai. Bonsai Babies™ are seedlings from one particular tree that produces trees with tight internodes similar to ‘Mikawa yatsubusa’, but much smaller leaves, almost that of the species. The leaves get even smaller using the pinch method in the summer. This makes Bonsai Babies™ the ideal tree for pre-bonsai, bonsai, or container growing. Bonsai Babies™ are all seedlings, so there may be variance in traits. In the early spring, the green leaves may have a purple red border. This color fades to solid green leaves and new growth in the summer may have a coral pink color. Fall color on most of the seedlings are orange to red. With these tight internodes, we expect most of the these seedlings to be under 6 ft in 10 years, if planted.
Bonsai Babies™ are all grown from seed and are not grafted. We cannot take photos of specific trees for orders however we have photos of the typical size and shapes of the 1 gallon Bonsai Babies™.
While Bonsai Babies™ is the name of this grouping of seedlings, it is not a selected cultivar. Variance in seedlings may occur. If you want to start a bonsai, a Bonsai Baby™ is one of the best trees to start with.
