We are pleased to offer fine quality Sweetgum bonsai & pre-bonsai for sale.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum11pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

This specimen was lifted in May 2018, with the intial styling done that fall. It’s a very nice twin-trunk specimen, and is on its way to being a fine bonsai. The trunk base is 2″ across both trunks, and the higher chop is at 12″. I expect this tree to end up at a finished height of about 18″.

Age about 7-10 years.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum11pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Here’s a nice Sweetgum I lifted in 2017. I left it alone to grow for a season, then this year I felt it was ready for a bonsai pot.

The branch set is nice, and will begin ramifying this year. The trunk character is just terrific. I think the Chuck Iker round it’s potted in complements the tree perfectly.

The trunk is 1.25″ in diameter; height of the tree is 18″ from the soil.

Age about 7 years.

Ships in February if you’re in the South, in spring otherwise.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum11pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Here’s a terrific natural twin-trunk I lifted earlier this year.

Nice complementary movement of the trunks. Growth is strong now, and it should be ready for wiring a little later in the season.

The main trunk is 1.5″ in diameter and it’s 14″ to the chop.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum8pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, I really love the movement in this trunk.

Notice the new leader is emerging at just the perfect spot to continue the trunk line. Ready for an initial wiring in June. Can go to a bonsai pot in 2018. Nice trunk character.

1.5″ trunk, 11″ to the chop

Sweetgum (Sweetgum7pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, this is a nice stout specimen with very nice taper and trunk character.

The trunk is 2″ at the base, and it’s 10″ to the chop.

It’ll be ready for an initial wiring next month.

SOLD: $95 (delivered)

Sweetgum (Sweetgumbonsai13)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, this Sweetgum was recently slip-potted into this fine Byron Myrick oval, which should complement the fall color nicely.

The trunk is 1.5″ at the base, and it’s 13″ tall.

I did some preliminary wiring on it, but more will be done next month.

I really like this composition. The trunk has a lot of character, and I can see a fine bonsai here in just a couple of years.

SOLD: $235 (delivered)
