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!
R for Red Flowering Gum
While this species is called Corymbia ficifolia, some refer to it as Eucalyptus ficifolia. I prefer the former. This beautiful gum tree has some of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen, and I quite like the seed pods, too. When the foliage is full, they present a stunning display that’s hard to find anywhere else. That’s why I like the broom or canopy style for this bonsai.
You can easily let the upper growth spread out as you wish in an informal or formal style. It’s easy to care for, as long as you give it tons of water in the summer. The flowers take a few years to develop, but you’ll enjoy the show when they do, taking over most of the foliage.
I don’t know how I haven’t created a bonsai care guide for the Red Flowering Gum yet, or even a video. I’ve been wanting to propagate one of these for ages, and I finally succeeded two years ago. The seed germinated sooner than expected, and I still have it healthy and strong with my outside bonsais. It doesn’t look like a bonsai yet, but it’s getting there.
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.
