Bonsai is all about the details. It’s the smallest details in a tree that give the most reward. Eugenia Myrtifolia (aka Brush Cherry) is full of little details that make a big impact. Take its small white powder-puff flowers, and follow them up with magenta cherries. If that isn’t enough, there’s the fiery red new growth against its shiny green leaves, perfectly sized for bonsai.
