Shibui Bonsai specialises in quality pre bonsai and starters but occasionally I need to make some space in my personal bonsai collection. This year I have picked 2 advanced bonsai to go on the sale tables.
The first is a trident maple – Acer buergerianum. This tree is around 20 years old. It started out as field grown stock that showed good promise and has been refined slowly over the past 15 years. Great nebari and well ramified branching. You don’t often see trees of this quality for sale. $900
The second tree offered this year is a Japanese maple – Acer palmatum. Japanese maples are an iconic bonsai species but good quality specimens are not readily available. This one is also around 20 years old and priced at just $350.
