Bonsai Tenuifolium

Pittosporum tenuifolium is a small evergreen tree, up to 10 m, native to New Zealand, commonly known as kōhūhū and black matipo, and by other Māori names kohukohu and tawhiwhi. It is sometimes grown under the cultivar name 'Nigricans', so called because of its black stems. In horticulture it is valued for its coloured foliage (cultivated variations include purple, "silver" and variegated leaves), and for its tolerance of some horticulturally difficult growing conditions, including dry soils and shade (although in northwest Europe, cold and exposed situations do not suit it). The flowers generally go unnoticed because of their colour, a very dark reddish-purple, and are scented only at night. It is found growing wild in coastal and lower mountain forest areas up to an altitude of 900m. The Latin tenuifolium means "slender-leaved".

Bonsai is an Asian art form using cultivation techniques to produce small trees in containers that mimic the shape and scale of full size trees. Similar practices exist in East Asian cultures, including the Chinese tradition of penzai from which the Japanese version Bonsai originated. The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years. The Japanese loanword ”bonsai” has become an umbrella term in English, attached to many forms of potted or other plants, and also on occasion to other living and non-living things.

A bonsai tree is a symbol of patience, tolerance and diligence. 

The particularity of our bonsais is that it is almost impossible to create two identical trees, as each of them is a unique handmade craftsmanship, and the unique and irregular shape of their vineyards also makes each piece unique.
