The Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergii) bonsai tree is a captivating and popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts. This miniature version of the majestic Black Pine tree is known for its rugged, twisting branches, and vibrant dark green needles.
In a 16cm pot, this bonsai tree showcases a harmonious balance between its size and the intricacies of its design. The compact pot allows for precise shaping and maintenance of the tree's overall structure, creating a visually appealing and balanced composition.
The trunk of the Japanese Black Pine bonsai exhibits a weathered and textured appearance, resembling the ruggedness of an ancient tree. The bark is typically dark brown or black, offering a striking contrast against the lush green foliage.
The needles of the tree are arranged in pairs, emanating a sense of elegance and symmetry. The needles themselves are relatively long compared to other bonsai varieties, measuring around 5 to 7 centimetres in length. Their deep green colour adds depth and richness to the overall aesthetic.
Regular pruning and shaping are essential for maintaining the desired form of the Japanese Black Pine bonsai. Through careful cultivation techniques, the branches can be trained to exhibit dramatic, angular shapes, reminiscent of the windswept style often seen in Japanese bonsai.
- Image shown is of the actual tree you will receive unless stated otherwise in the actual product's description
- The height given is from the base of the pot to the top of the tree.
- The tree received may be slightly different from the picture. Whilst we try to keep the photos of our trees as up to date as possible, these are live plants and, as such, will continue to grow and change slightly in between the times we take the photos.
- Some of our Bonsai pots are bought in bulk and unfortunately it's impossible to photograph each single item so the photograph used is taken from one random item of each collection we sell. In 99% of cases this means that any differences won't even be noticeable, however, if you have seen a particular image of a pot that has a certain streak of paint in a certain place, bear in mind that the pot you receive may not be 100% identical to this.
