A couple aromatic succulent bonsai prospects
A couple of months back I received a few plants from a miniatree.com, a nursery in Tempe, Arizona.
Patte Lanus works there and she set up a phyto inspection and got the paperwork ready for export up here to Canada.
First up is Bursera hindsiana, currently in a 6" pot.
I really like the thickened trunk it has for such a small seedling.
Next up is Boswellia nana, a shot from above.
This species is a natural dwarf tree or shrub, growing to a height of 60 cm (24 inches), making it a very good bonsai subject.
This plant flows with a balsam that resembles juniper in smell, to my nose.
I also was able to obtain a Commiphora myrrha, a species I had been wanting for a while.
Haven't taken any photos of this one yet, but will once I decide on how to wire it into shape.
If you are interested in aromatic succulent bonsai subjects, check out the miniatree.com site.
Below is a link to my review of The Miniatree Garden.
