Oriental Spruce Bonsai Tree (picea orientalis ‘Tom Thumb’)

The brilliant golden fingers of tight foliage of the Oriental Spruce bonsai tree point out from the center of this lovely spiky globe.


This evergreen conifer is popular for bonsai due to its beautiful gold needles, extremely slow growth, and compact nest form. To preserve its golden hue, the Oriental Spruce loves early light and afternoon shade when temperatures climb.

Outdoor evergreen bonsai tree, 10 years old, 11-12″ tall, cultivated and trained by Bonsai Boy
It is advised to use a humidity/drip tray. To buy, add $9.95.
