Crepe Cultivation

Patience is a virtue. The ancient Japanese art of bonsai stems from the meditative search for the essence of nature over years of cultivation. Begin your exploration of this horticultural tradition with these bonsai specimen kits. Each one includes everything you need to start growing your own crepe myrtle bonsai tree--seeds, growing medium, bonsai pruners, detailed directions, and a recycled US steel grow box.

A deciduous tree with textured, grey-on-red-bark, crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) is one of the loveliest and easiest bonsai varieties to grow. During the second year of cultivation, leaves change from green to red through the spring. The tree has tiny pink-to-red flowers that grow on new wood and appear during summer months. Crepe myrtle bonsai may also be displayed during the winter months, after its leaves have fallen, to reveal its wonderful trunk color and structure. Kit made in Idaho.
