Your Fukien tea photos can show what a great bonsai this subtropical plant can be.
Many Ehretia are imported specimens, some are grown from nursery stock. They can also be grown from seed and cuttings. They are especially known for their shiny leaves and small flowers. Some varieties fruit often!
The Fukien Tea bonsai page has three photographs and contains lots of information about this plant.
If you haven’t read the details, take a minute now.
It’s rare to attend a bonsai convention in Florida (where I am) and not find several wonderful Ehretia bonsai on exhibit. I also know their popularity is not restricted to the tropics.
I've heard "this plant can be difficult outside the tropics".
If you're having a good experience and grow yours indoors during the winter, we would especially like to see your tree.
Remember to give the details about light, pests etc.
Of course, trees from warmer climates are welcome too! I know there are some real masterpieces out there.
If you're not ready to display a photo go to the bottom of this page to see other submissions.
Do you have a beautiful Fukien Tea bonsai?
Share your photo and what you like about it with us! (Or maybe what you don't like?)
Most bonsai have story, please tell your Ehretia story.
Where did it come from? How long have you had it? Is it difficult to care for?
Please give us the dimensions of your tree and tell about the container too!
