The smallest Mame Bonsai trees

Bonsai are known for their small size. But Mame Bonsai (up to 4" or 10cm) take the quest for miniaturization one step further. Mame and pottery artist Haruyosi (Japan) shares with us several of his miniature works of wonder.

Most Mame Bonsai are around 2" (5cm) tall, like this Juniper. Mame literally means "Bean" in Japanese.
