An affordable variety of Tuscan Bonsai, with a fantastic appearance that is easy to maintain.
Tuscan Cloud Bonsai Trees are a popular choice because of their dense foliage and their ability to change colour based on exposure to the sun. Over time, leaves at the top of its bundles become golden-yellow, where as those lower down retain their dark green colour because of the shade they receive. Tuscan Cloud Bonsai Trees also produce very small flowers and berries during the summer.
Specially sculpted over many years to create elegant “statement pieces” for your garden, bonsai plants are always a favourite with visitors thanks to their unusual shape and the dedication involved in growing them. Traditionally described as “unique”, this is no longer entirely true – thanks to patient and persistent growers, like those at GardenPlantsOnline, it is now possible to produce bonsai plants with similar shapes if they are seeded at the same time and grown under the same conditions. This consistency of shape gives you the chance to create beautifully symmetrical garden designs, such as lining a pathway with a line of matching bonsai trees, or bookending both sides of a doorway or arch.
