Hello all, I picked up a really nice pink flowered bonsai from the member sales table at the East Bay Bonsai show last weekend. The only description on the tag was “Magenta”. Anyone able to tell me what this is?
It’s cuphea, a common perennial shrub. You can cut them back anywhere and they’ll bud back there.
I have yet to see one develop a good size trunk, but they’re fairly easy to keep healthy and bloom a lot.
