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!
T for Texas Ebony
Here’s one of our bonsai species from the legume or bean family. As the name implies, it’s mostly found in Texas, but you’ll also locate them in Mexico. Such rare distribution is what makes the tree valuable as a bonsai, as you won’t really find them anywhere else unless someone has made extra effort to export them.
The leaves on the Texas Ebony bonsai are dark green while the seed pods are long and slightly curved. If you have experience with legume trees, it should be easy for you to germinate the seeds or take some cuttings. You’ll also love the yellow flowers that appear in the foliage before the beans appear.
When I reached the letter T in this alphabetical list of bonsai trees, I immediately thought of Texas Ebony. I wrote a care guide for it some time back, and that was the first time I’d come across one. It really struck me with how beautiful it is, but it also amazed me how few sites were writing about it. I made it my mission to make it more well-known. Now you can know about it too.
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.
