This dense, evergreen bonsai has been shaped to form the appearance of clouds on levelled branches.
English Yew Bonsai Trees have small dark green needle-like leaves that explode outwards from horizontal branches. This density of foliage has made them a popular choice for topiary, as they are able to be trimmed with high precision without the risk of creating bald patches. English Yew Trees have a long pedigree in garden and landscape design – often used to create sharp-edged geometric forms, or in this case, a cascade of rounded clouds.
These particular style of English Yew Bonsai Tree are in their adolescent stage, meaning you’ll have many decades to enjoy their beauty and to develop your sculpting skills before they reach maturity at around age 50. Even as a topiary bonsai, yew trees are fairly low maintenance and their glossy evergreen leaves will be a striking focal point of your garden throughout the year.
Our Premium Bonsai Plants have been specially sculpted to form distinctive shapes. This growth-training is a process that can take over 30 years to create trees of this size. This care and attention becomes entwined with the plant itself – giving them a genuine “wow factor” and making them a favourite talking point with everyone who sees them. A Premium Bonsai Plant can help to create an atmosphere of luxury, sophistication and dedication in your garden, workplace, office atrium or shopping centre.
Traditionally described as “unique”, this is no longer entirely true – thanks to the expert growers here at GardenPlantsOnline, it is now possible to produce bonsai plants with similar shapes by seeding them at the same time and growing them under the same conditions. This consistency of shape gives you the chance to create magnificently symmetrical designs, such as creating several water features with matching bonsai trees, or bookending both sides of a doorway or entrance foyer.
