As you probably already know, bonsai is the Japanese art of growing miniature trees or shrubs in planters. You’ve may have already seen at least some tiny potted junipers, a common species for bonsai, at some point, but actually many different species are suitable for bonsai, including some flowering trees like wisteria, or fuji in Japanese.

Fuji has special significance in Japanese culture, supposedly representing beginnings, especially the start of a romance, and has been mentioned in historical waka poems going back to the 8th century. However, you don’t have to be Japanese to appreciate the beauty of these dangling ombre flowers, particularly when they come in the exquisitely tiny bonsai variety.
