A New Dawn, A New Day
The Bonsai is a recreation of nature, artistically interpreted, that is constantly growing and changing; the art of gardening in its purist sense. While there are masters who have pursued and perfected this ancient skill for generations, bonsai remains an entirely simple process. Ancient trees related to the coastal redwoods of California, Dawn redwood was once thought to be extinct. In the 1940’s, was re-discovered growing in a remote region of central China. Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) was named the "discovery tree" and symbolizes the surprises still to be found in nature. The tree species for this kit was carefully chosen for its beauty as a bonsai specimen and for its fast growth rate. Your bonsai kit includes everything needed to grow and sculpt an authentic bonsai tree into an elegant work of living art. What makes the Dawn redwood truly special is that it is a deciduous coniferous tree. Meaning, in the autumn, the light green foliage turns bronze and ultimately, like leaves, drop off as a normal part of growth.
