Korean Bunjae


Bonsai spread to Korea during the Tang or Song Dynasty (7th - 13th century). Bunjae is the Korean word for the practice of the art of Bonsai. Bunjae trees are not miniature hybrids; they are normal trees intentionally dwarfed into an aesthetically pleasing shape by constant pruning and training with wires. Korean Bunjae cultivators tend to focus on using native species namely pines, juniper, hornbeam, zelkova, azaleas and painted maples. Small leafed trees are preferred because leaves stay in proportion to the tree trunk.
