The A to Z of Bonsai Trees
Welcome to our very first bonsai gallery. I’ve decided to kick it off with an A to Z of bonsai trees, showcasing various species and genera under the appropriate letter. In most cases, we’re covering trees we’ve already presented on our website, while others are simply ones that I like.
With so many names in the bonsai world, it was easy selecting which trees I wanted in my alphabetical list. Perhaps your list would have been different. Even so, I hope you’ll enjoy the images and content I put together for you to read.
Please stay until the end. There will be a poll on the last page asking which name on the A to Z bonsai tree list you enjoyed the most. It will be interesting to see which one comes out on top, and I might even publish the results if we receive enough responses.
Alright! Let’s get started with the first one!
L for Lemon
Let’s follow that one up with a species that’s definitely part of the Citus genus. I’m not sure how many of you have seen Lemon bonsai trees, but there are many in my town. It seems to be one of the more popular fruit bonsais around, especially if you manage to keep the lemons as small as possible.
The Lemon tree, known scientifically as Citrus limon, is native to Asia, mostly India. The leaves have a slight fragrance to them when you rub them between your fingers, and I’m sure you all know the bitter taste all too well. As a bonsai, the small white flowers put on a splendid show before the fruit appears.
I personally tried to grow some lemon seeds this year! I succeeded in germinating two of them, which grew into seedlings and rested well over the winter. Both of them have started growing again this spring and are back outside in full sunlight! I’m so happy!
And that’s it, folks! Which one was your favorite?
There you have it! It may have taken me a few hours to produce this alphabetical list of bonsai trees, but now you’re more educated than before. That means the world to me, sharing some knowledge so that it can continue to others.
I want to know from you which is your favorite bonsai tree on this list. We have a poll here below where you can click your response and let us know. It’s completely anonymous, so you don’t have to worry about us stealing any information. If we receive enough votes, we’ll certainly share the details on social media.
