Turn your gardens dynamic and living with the Beech bonsai
The Beech bonsai is highly evocative in multiple ways and gives a feeling of drifting through the warm European landscapes on a fine Spring morning.
- Artistic leaves: The plant has lush foliage that gives a nostalgic feeling of walking beneath the shade of large encircling trees in a forest. Unlike most other deciduous trees, the Beech bonsai will retain its leaves throughout the winter making for a delightful treat to the eyes even when the weather is bleak. During spring, the small leaf buds will begin to display silky hairs, which shed when the leaves mature. When the leaves change their color to reddishbrown in autumn, it gives the plant its beautifully ever-changing and dynamic appearance.
- Lovely flowers: The plant blossoms with beautiful catkins during the months of April and May. These flowers look like delicate balls of tangled threads hanging from the twigs of the Beech bonsai tree.
- Edible beechnuts: Feel free to relish the sweet and sour flavor of beechnuts by plucking them off of your Beech bonsai. These fruits or nuts will be borne inside triangular-shaped seed cases so remember to look out for those.
