These are not a tree one normally associates with bonsai.  But  to me they are one of the most important trees I work with.

We keep a variety of sizes in various parts of the BONSAI area.

Not only do they add variety to the garden, they also offer color.  We have had 2-3 plants flower in the last couple of years.

But the main reason I grow them is for water indicators.  If any of these guys start to wilt from dryness it tells me the entire garden needs a drink.  IMG_2029The lilac shown in the blue pots is in the 8-9 year old.
