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!

I for Italian Cypress

Also known as the Mediterranean or Tuscan Cypress, the Italian Cypress bonsai is one that’s doing particularly well on our site. It’s renowned for its tall spire, pointing to the heavens with a wide body tapering to the upper end. The small berry cones are beautiful in my eyes, and one of my most prized possessions. It has a long lifespan, which is why so many people love having it as a bonsai.

As part of the official Cypress family, the Italian Cypress has gorgeous green needles that tend to grow upwards. While it’s known for its pyramid style, you can also develop the foliage in many other shapes. It will make a lifelong companion if you care for it properly, transferring it to your children or other loved ones as an heirloom.

I’m starting to realize how many bonsai trees that died in that dreadful drought a few years ago are on this list. I managed to propagate a seed into a small sapling, but that was the same year we had the drought. There’s a house a few blocks away from me that has a tall Italian Cypress tree overhanging the short fence over the pavement. Perhaps I should do some stealth cutting or cone retrieving when no one is looking, or overcome my social anxiety and just ask for it.
