Pinus nigra, commonly known as the European Black Pine, is a majestic tree that exudes timeless beauty when sculpted into a bonsai form, particularly the cloud style. The cloud style, or "Nikashi", embodies the essence of an aged, windswept tree, resembling clouds floating on a skyline.

This 2-meter tall Pinus nigra 'nigra' bonsai cloud tree stands as an emblem of nature's artistry combined with human patience and dexterity. Its rugged, dark-colored bark, reminiscent of the toughened scales of an ancient dragon, contrasts strikingly with its vibrant, green needles which are densely tufted in groups. Each 'cloud' or foliage pad showcases meticulous pruning, ensuring they float distinctively apart from one another, capturing the essence of clouds drifting in the sky.

The trunk is strong and slightly sinuous, showing signs of purposeful training and weathering over time. Its gnarled roots grip the soil, anchoring the bonsai, while the cascading branches give it an ethereal aura. These cascading branches also display a gradient of foliage density, from the denser upper branches to the sparser, more refined ones lower down, creating a visual rhythm.

Every facet of this Pinus nigra 'nigra' cloud bonsai tells a story of nature's passage of time, endurance, and the harmonious interplay between nature and the skilled hands of its cultivator.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
