Sageratia Bonsai

Sageretia Bonsai From Herons Bonsai

This species is suitable for growing indoors, and is similar in some ways to the Indoor Chinese Elm. It thrives outdoors in Summer but it prefers cool indoor conditions in Winter. They dehydrate quickly if kept in warm rooms in the winter. If you cannot provide cool growing conditions indoors during the winter, then a cool conservatory or unheated greenhouse would provide the ideal environment. They shed their leaves in Winter and in warm Summers may flower and fruit. They have dark coloured berries which birds are fond of - hence the Chinese name 'Cheuk Mui' or 'Bird plum cherry'.
