Hand Held Bonsai & a Glass of Good Red Wine


smallmain3The leaves are very large in relation to the size of the tree, but this often happens with small bonsai and seems to work. At least in this case and many others I've seen. No variety is given, but clearly this is a Japanese maple. I cropped this photo and most of the others shown here for a closer look

I like good photos of hand held small bonsai. Mostly because it’s an aesthetically pleasing way to provide scale. A much better effect than a soft drink can (though Suthin’s glass of wine does the job without offending my sensibilities). I borrowed all but the last photo in this post from Hong Kong Bonsai Pots. No varieties or attribution is provided. I’ll give my guess on most of them, but remember they are just guesses. Feel free to offer corrections (it’s best to go to the comments on our fb timeline though if that doesn’t work, you can email me at


A red leaf Japanese maple. I won't guess the variety



Clearly a pine. Again, I won't guess the variety



Look like a Needle juniper (J rigida), but don't take it to the bank. My guesses can be a little shaky



Your guess is as good as mine



The leaves look familiar. Perhaps it's an Ilex. Going further out on a limb, perhaps it's a Japanese winterberry (Ilex crenata)?



The uncropped original. All of the original photos have the little logo you see here. It's not Hong Kong Bonsai Pot's logo. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine


Suthin's wine (btw, this photo has nothing to do with HK Bonsai Pots)
