Roseapple bonsai trees

The stunning Syzygium Buxifolium is a native species to South Africa and is commonly called a Roseapple/Brush Cherry or Myrtle. They get their names from the small bright red fruits which have a cherry-like appearance.

Additionally, beautiful soft cream flowers precede the fruits are have wonderful long stamens which give them a star-burst appearance.
The leaves of this species are naturally small in size giving this bonsai as naturally dainty stature. The new leaves are often flushed with a blush-red colour and fade to a dark green. An easy variety to grow and ideal for beginners.

Furthermore, the Roseapple bonsai has been a symbol of love, hence has become an emblem for marriage. It is also believed to be the flower of the gods, being sacred to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love. … The Roseapple also symbolises good fortune. It is believed that cultivating a Roseapple plant will usher in peace and love to your home. This plant is also considered a representation for long life, as well as joyful living. It is very elegant bonsai tree that many people love to grow in their homes.

Personally, I think this bonsai is highly under-rated. We love it. The proportions are sensational with naturally miniature leaves. I love the fact that it both flowers and fruits and the blooms are a very pretty soft ivory almost semi-double in form. Cherry like fruits are a cheerful pink. The bark is a warm red in tone. It is one of the easiest bonsai to grow and is fairly tough so can live outside also for much of the year – although we do recommend protecting from frosts.

An amazing little bonsai which signifies love, good fortune, long life and joyful living. A fabulous gift idea for any celebration including birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas.
