Needle, Leaf & Blossom

The ancient Japanese practice of growing bonsai trees is both an art and a form of meditation. These three kits each come in a sleek, steel box, and include everything you need to start growing your own beautiful bonsai tree. Each plant by itself is a natural wonder, but together they form a complete forest panorama in miniature.

Gardenia (Gardenia Jasminoides) is one of the easiest bonsai trees to grow. It's known for its white, richly scented flowers that bloom in the late spring.

The Grey Elm (Zelkova serrata) has sweeping, delicate branches. Its small, serrated leaves turn orange and gold as they mark the transition to autumn.

The striking Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergii) has a rugged, twisting form and clusters of needles that remain green through the winter.

Planting boxes made in US from recycled steel. Ribbon made in US from recycled plastic bottles. Kit contains tree seed, organic growing medium and bonsai scissors.
