Keshiki means something like “landscape” in Japanese and is pronounced kesh-key. The term is used by Kenji Kobayashi in his book to refer to simple “landscape” bonsai that he creates.  

My keshiki come from the same idea.

The Chinese Elm, a popular bonsai favourite: hardy, small elegant leaves, shapely trunks with attractive, mottled bark.

Mine, an informal upright of about 10 years, has a new set of leaves and has been lightly pruned this week. The elm (a semi-evergreen) is semi-deciduous in Auckland.

Shaping and pruning is on the informal side with this tree, but will get a good shaping in the spring. Has good branch structure and is a vigorous grower in recent years, with stout little branches.

As shown in the last image, you can grow a Chinese elm from cuttings.
