Our Special Bonsai of the Month:

SOLD - another fine specimen coming shortly...

This is Liana's special Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy of note because it is a promising specimen, excellent value, and shows character.


Number: 6412
Name: Shimpaku Juniper

Scientific  Name: Juniperus  x sargentii “Shimpaku”
Date of Birth: 1998
Origin: Asia
Cultivation: Prefers light to medium, well drained soil in an open, sunny position.  Frost resistant and drought tender.  Juniper Bonsai require at least five hours of direct, hot sunlight every day to remain green and to grow new needles.  

Height - 57cm
Width - 48cm
Age - 20 years
Pot - 40x24x9cm unglazed, terracotta, Chinese, brown.

For February 2018 we are presenting a Shimpaku Juniper in an informal, upright style.

"...I have allowed this Bonsai to grow and form naturally, not using wire to shape it.  With regular pinching of needles and unwanted shoots, I’ve aimed to create unusual shape rather than a formal style.  The new parents of this Bonsai can choose to wire, remove growth or decrease the height as they wish.  This Bonsai is open to ‘styling’.

Shimpaku Junipers have been used as Bonsai for hundreds of years as they are hardy, have soft foliage and can be trained into many designs.  In Japan these Bonsai have been collected from nature to the stage of extinction but our Bonsai are all grown from cuttings and nursery stock.  

Daily watering and very sunny conditions are necessary for this Bonsai to thrive.  It is not an indoor Bonsai and will die without real sun and outdoor moisture.  The conditions in our nursery are partial sun from 8 am to 11 am, full sun from 11 am to 4 pm, full shade from 4 pm to morning.  Watering is thorough every morning, before sunrise.  Monthly liquid feeding with food for Azalea/Camellia plants is applied.  Summer needle pinching is fortnightly..."

All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions.  Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ for each Bonsai within three months of purchase.  Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.


All pricing is in Australian Dollars and includes GST. Shipping costs are quoted at the time of order placement and will depend on your location and preferred shipping method. 

Please note that due to Government quarantine regulations we cannot ship Bonsai and soil products outside our state of Western Australia at this time...
