Juniper Bonsai: photos and characteristics

Juniper bonsai is one of the most recognized species of the category, most used by the most expert and famous gardeners to create suggestive green landscapes near domestic gardens and the most renowned city public parks. Particularly resistant to the most varied climatic adversities and to possible attacks of parasites, the juniper is preferred to a large number of specimens of the same species because it is considered an easy plant to maintain, which bodes well even during the winter frost and the hottest months of the year. It is preferable to place this plant in the open air, to ensure that the soil always remains rather moist; another important factor is undoubtedly the brightness, which must be guaranteed throughout the year.

More appreciated for its colorful flowers, especially pink and white, is another type of bonsai: the rhododendron, also known as the ‘rose tree’.

The privet: photos and care of the species


Privet plants are able to tolerate a wide range of conditions and are among the smallest and easiest shrubs to manage and therefore to grow. It is thanks to their versatility and a rather small number of treatments that they are widely required to decorate the windowsills of many apartments. The privet usually seems to prefer a location where it is allowed to receive a direct light source (it is for this reason that previously there was talk of ‘windowsill’), at least for part of the day. Also suitable for outdoor cultivation, where, however, it cannot be grown except in optimal climatic conditions and never below ten degrees centigrade, it is mainly sold as an indoor plant, with repotting to be carried out about every two years.

Photo bonsai: The boxus sempervirens (boxwood)


Boxus sempervirens, more commonly known as Boxwood, is a very long-lived tree belonging to the Buxaceae family, able to survive up to 600 years. If left uncared for, boxwood can reach a maximum height of six meters (in optimal climatic conditions), but at the same time it has a rather slow growth, which is best used as a hedge plant. Its best location is in a semi-shaded area, especially if you live in a particularly hot region; particularly resistant to atmospheric agents and cold (it can also tolerate frost although for a short period of time), boxwood requires very little care: a small problem can only be given by planting, although it rarely tends to create irreversible damage,
