Product Description

Sageretias are tender shrubs native to Asia and warmer areas of North America. Extensively grown in China for use as bonsai, Sageretias are evergreen in milder climates but become deciduous in temperate zones when exposed to the cold of winter. Sageretias will survive temperatures just below freezing but it is highly recommended to keep them in conditions that rarely drop below around 10 C to keep them in continual growth. They are excellent house plants. For most parts of Europe and North America this means growing Sageretias indoors from around September to May. Sageretias have symmetrically arranged shiny, oval mid-green leaves to 1.5cm long, young growth is reddish in colour before it matures. The bark quickly becomes scaly and is a dark-brown in colour. In Summer tiny flowers appear in the leaf axils of new shoots and produce large clusters of white followed by small blue berries. Sageretias are slow to form thick trunks and have very fine formative growth; thick-trunked specimens tend to be imported from China where they are field grown.
