Flowering Cherry Bonsai
Botanical name: Prunus incisa 'Kojo-No-Mai'
The Kojo-No-Mai Flowering Cherry has crocked branches and delicate white flowers with pink centers which appear to hang like lanterns from the bottom of branches. It has thin white flaky, to deeply fissured brown bark. The leaves are pale green in summer, orange yellow in autumn, and the fruits are black.
Hardy Bonsai material needs to be wintered over in a protected cold spot so that they can go through their natural dormancy period. Inside an unheated garage, cold frame, or bury in the ground with good insulation for the roots.
