Sea Hibiscus – One of a Kind Pre-Bonsai
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Hibiscus tiliaceus
COMMON NAME: Sea Hibiscus
DIMENSIONS: 10″ (h) 5″ (nebari) 1/2″ (trunk at first branch) 9″ Plastic Pot
UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Root over Rock bonsai are developed by placing a rooted cutting in the 1st year of its development over a rock and binding the roots in place with grafting tape. The tree and rock is then planted deep in organic nursery soil and over the next 2 years the soil is dropped progressively exposing the roots as they thicken and develop. In the 3rd year they are planted in bonsai soil and the training is continued. This tree is 2nd year in of development. It is fused beautifully to the rock. As the tree develops in further years it will be a real specimen root over rock.
CARE: SEA HIBISCUS has lovely deep green, heart shaped leaves, and produces a gorgeous yellow flower that ages to a deep orange before it falls from the plant. Native to Hawaii. Used widely in Taiwan and Indonesia for their excellent ability to ramify and speed of growth. Sea Hibiscus likes full sun and moderate water and fertilizer. Tropical tree, keep away from freezing temperatures!
