Yatsubusa is the Japanese word for ‘dwarf.’  This tree is a Dwarf (Yatsubusa) Chinese Elm.  I acquired this tree from Hiroshi Matsuda.  His Uncle Taka was one of seven founding members of the Sierra Bonsai Club of Placer County.  Through a turn of events, Tad Yego, the President of Sierra Bonsai gave this tree as a gift to Hiroshi Matsuda.  It has been in training for over 40 years.

Chinese Elms are indigenous to China and south-east Asia. In its native environment, it can reach heights of 80 feet (25 meters). It develops a fine branch ramification with small leaves, which makes it a very suitable Bonsai plant.
A collector’s tree with a long history.

Available for local pick-up (contact for personal delivery option).
