Barbados Cherry Root-Over Rock Semi-Cascade Style Bonsai Tree
This specimen is not only trained root but also semi cascade style, clasping to the rock. Barbados Cherry is truly one of my favorite species to use as material for bonsai. These bonsai are not just very hardy and versatile they give the wow factor with their lovely bright red fruit. The small pink flowers, which bloom in spurts from April through October, look very similar to the flowers of crape myrtle. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Though the fruit is edible and high in vitamin C it is quite tart.
