Bonsai

trees

Bonsai, ancient Oriental art of growing dwarf trees. Trees are kept small by pruning roots and branches and by restricting growth in trays or pots. The modern enthusiast may spend many years cultivating a miniature tree. Plants that can be dwarfed include the cedars, myrtles, junipers, oaks, cypresses, pyracanthas, and pines.
