The Bantulinao is a tree species that I am unfamiliar with here in the UK, however, looking through the images in this article, one can appreciate not only the suitability of this species for bonsai, but also the way in which the tree in question has been styled. This article was first published in the August edition of the Harbest Bonsai Newsletter, an e-mail based newsletter from the Philippines for more details and subscription information, please see the foot of this page. My thanks go to Leo de Leon and Teddy Lim for granting me permission to reproduce this article at Bonsai4me. Bantulinao is a tender evergreen with small white flowers which has red fruits when ripe. The tree should be positioned in full sun; in warm, wet and windy conditions. The appealing character of this tree species is that it has uniquely black bark and roots, nice thick ovate leaves, and tiny fruits.
