Japanese White Beech Bonsai – (Fagus Crenata)

The Japanese White Beech bonsai (Fagus Crenata), also known as Siebold’s Beech, is a tree native to Japan. There, it is a feature of many deciduous forests, growing particularly well in north-east Honshu – Japan’s largest island – but is restricted to mountainous areas closer to the south-west. As a tree, it can reach an impressive height of 35 metres (115 ft), where it is topped with a rounded crown. It gives a graceful yet powerful impression, with an easy charm.

In the Western world, however, Japanese White Beech are much more unusual. They are typically found only as a bonsai and, even then, they are difficult to come by. They are a hardy variety of bonsai that is best suited outdoors, making it an easy tree to care for. With a smooth grey bark and simple but striking leaves, it becomes an elegant feature for any garden.

This specific bonsai is a beautiful example of the Japanese White Beech (Fagus Crenata), well-established at 30 years old. From those years, it has reached a height of over 80cm, a substantial and striking example of such a tree. Its exposed roots and nebari enhance this bonsai’s elegance, giving it a unique charm. The trunk extends upwards and tapers gracefully to where its branches then reach outwards, supporting a beautiful crown of large and bright leaves.

It is centred in a dark teal pot – engraved and painted in a bright yellow and red, depicting a scene of blossoming flowers – which only adds to this bonsai’s overall beauty.
