A couple aromatic succulent bonsai prospects

A couple of months back I received a few plants from a miniatree.com, a nursery in Tempe, Arizona.

Patte Lanus works there and she set up a phyto inspection and got the paperwork ready for export up here to Canada.

First up is Bursera hindsiana, currently in a 6" pot.

I really like the thickened trunk it has for such a small seedling.

Next up is Boswellia nana, a shot from above.

This species is a natural dwarf tree or shrub, growing to a height of 60 cm (24 inches), making it a very good bonsai subject.

This plant flows with a balsam that resembles juniper in smell, to my nose.

I also was able to obtain a Commiphora myrrha, a species I had been wanting for a while.

Haven't taken any photos of this one yet, but will once I decide on how to wire it into shape.

If you are interested in aromatic succulent bonsai subjects, check out the miniatree.com site.
