The bonsai has a strong structure and highly defined shape. As a result, this beautiful little tree offers all the beauty of the Orient.

Displaying leaves in a fresh green in colour, and as the bonsai matures, pretty white flowers are displayed. The bark has a green hue and gnarly nature to it, just like a fully grown tree. This bonsai tree L. sinense symbolises peace and friendship.
