Literally, bonsai is a tree in a pot. This traditionally encompasses trees and shrubs place in pots and styled to look like natural, old, large trees. Whomever it was that said this either has very little knowledge of bonsai or is possibly one of the elitist bonsai enthusiasts who believes that, if it's not a maple, pine, or some other tree that has the potential to reach great heights, it's not a bonsai. There are plenty of tree species that can only get a few feet high that are worthy (and traditionally used) as bonsai. Satsuki azaleas spring to mind immediately.bonsaidavid wrote:Someone told me that it is a type of flower, and not actually a bonsai - is this true?
Can someone please answer me?
