We have had several bonsai trees over the years. My favorite are the Serissa. We have had a couple of them. First, we tried to have one in Alaska - not it's native climate. While the tree did okay (until we housed it next to a diseased tree we were "tree sitting" for) it never bloomed.
We have been unable to get any blooms from any Serissa we've had. Until now. My tree is blooming!
Somehow, it makes everything feel like it will be okay.
