That's not a type of tree so much as a way of training them. As a general rule, bonsai are trees like conifers or broad-leaved trees, which don't like it shady.

I like Scheffleras, and at least my outdoor arboricola can stand a light frost. Actinophylla seems to like it >40 F, but it's more tree-like.
