Several dwarf varieties, sports of Ulmus parvifolia, exist which grow slower than the ordinary Chinese elm but it produces a much finer network of twigs and branches. It is these sports which are used for bonsai. - Family: Ulmaceae. - Lighting: Will grow in full sun or partial shade. - Temperature: Zones 5B - 10A. More restricted zones may apply to some of the dwarf varieties. - Watering: Needs a lot of water. - Fertilizing: To retain and produce small leaves, do not feed high nitrogen fast-acting fertilizers. Feeding three times a year is sufficient to maintain good color and healthy growth without enlarging the size of the leaves. - Pruning and wiring: Most shaping can be done by pruning. The bark is thin and may be damaged easily. - Propagation: Cuttings may be made from new tip growth taken in early summer. - Repotting: They transplant well. Use Hollow Creek Farms Double Screened or Professional Main Bonsai Soil. They have heavy root growth so must have root room.
