The common name for this species is swamp paperbark, but I am yet to see any bark peal off this bonsai. That is probably because it is too young so I will hold out hope that occurs in the future. The only reason I have posted this particular tree is because it is in flower. If you are a regular looker at this site you have probably noticed that I post a lot of bonsai while in flower and that is simply because I like that aspect. It is a good show this year on a small tree (its about 22 cm tall) and if it would have flowered on the left branch as you look at it at the same time as the other flowers it would have been very nicely balanced, but still good this year. All the flowers will be cut off in a few days and then back onto the ramification process.
