If you like weird, contorted Chinese dwarfs, we've now got a legal way to exercise your bizarre fetish...with Poncirus 'Baby Dragon'. This natural bonsai is a shrunken version of the popular Poncirus 'Flying Dragon', but far more dwarf and contorted. Our 10-year-old specimen has reached 3' tall x 4' wide, so we're guessing 4' tall x 6' wide in 20-30 years. Poncirus 'Baby Dragon' has naturally fissured bark and an ancient-appearing, windswept form sans visible leaves, making it a great specimen in the garden or in an outdoor container where it's winter hardy. You'll rarely see this gem offered for sale since it is painfully difficult and slow to propagate, but hey...that's our kind of plant.
