Anyone have an idea what type of plant this is or at least the species?
That was my initial ID as well.JTred wrote:Looks like Euonymus or burning bush. I have a huge one in my front yard. They are slow to thicken and have a short growing period, but can make nice bonsai. Around here they grow like weeds, so I have two in pots and three in the ground.
I wouldn't, but you can use that plant as a bonsai specimen. I have one but it's not much to look at yet. If you give it a shot, be aware that this species only gives one flush of growth each year so a late pruning can cause problems. I found out the hard way.So the blunt end of it don't sell them
