The Kenwith Cypriot Cedar (Cedrus Brevifolia 'Kenwith') has been awarded the 2012 Collector's Conifer of the Year by The American Conifer Society!

This cultivar is among the smallest of the Cyprus Cedar cultivar varieties known for bonsai use. This is a true miniature bonsai species with proportional tiny branches and needles to mimic the look of a larger scale tree in a small size!

A true knockout choice to use in shohin and mame bonsai! Or even to use in fairy gardens, garden railways, terrariums, etc!


Cedrus brevifolia 'Kenwith' is an extremely slow-growing, super compact, and upright-growing conifer. They have tiny, dark-green needles with a fine texture to them. Sometimes it looks like its slightly inward curved branches are covered in felt fabric! If you live in regions with high heat and humidity, you may need to do a bit more needle thinning to prevent its foliage from cooking itself since you need to encourage more airflow on such a naturally tight needle structure. But overall it's quite easy to take care of since it's steady for a tiny bonsai tree.

Talk about taking things nice and slow! According to the American Conifer Society’s website, after 10 years of growth a mature specimen will only be about 12 inches (30 cm) tall and two-thirds as wide, suggesting a growth rate of less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) per year! Due to this snail-like growth rate, it’s recommended that you adopt a more natural style to maintain the tree’s mass if you prefer a fuller look.

Note that all pre-bonsai trees will come in a plastic nursery growing pot. This specific pre-bonsai tree has been grafted.

Caution Before Purchasing Any Pre-Bonsai and/or Bonsai Trees:
Please understand that the actual tree that you receive may be different than the example images provided. This is due to a wide range of factors such as: time of year, seasonal variations, differences in trimming & styling on individuals, natural changes during growth over time, etc. Our staff members ARE NOT ABLE to always provide recent photos of any bonsai & pre-bonsai trees for you to pick from due to our limited staff size; even when a written and/or phone request is submitted. House of Bonsai is a high production-oriented bonsai specialty nursery so we don't have the means to constantly pull ourselves away from production to take more photos of our ever-changing pre-bonsai & bonsai trees. This policy ensures that we're able to maintain a huge selection of different species, shapes, and sizes at reasonable prices for the public.


Actual Shipping Cost May Vary:
Depending on your zip code and distance from our 5.3 acre bonsai nursery store in Lakewood, CA 90713 (within Southern California), there may be an additional shipping charge that we need to collect from you for us to finish the fulfillment if you live in “very far away from our store areas” such as: near the New England region, Hawai’i, Alaska, Puerto Rico, the US Territories, etc. Please understand that we have no control over the shipping rates since that is determined by the common carrier (such as USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc) at the time we create the insured shipping label. The shipping rates can vary at any time throughout the year due to a wide variety of factors such as changes in gasoline prices, weather challenges during transit, etc.


The following pictures are general images of each species. Each tree looks slightly different due to the shape, trimming and season of the year. If you want a particular tree as exactly pictured, please go to our eBay store.

House of Bonsai reserves the right to delay on shipping any live plant order by several days; in order to attempt to decrease the high risk of major shipping related stress that may shock the plants during extreme weather conditions (too hot or cold). If we are purposely delaying your order because of this, we will notify you via email. Before you submit an order, please be mindful of your local weather and time of year. If there is major damage (ex: plant is dead or many branches are broken), please contact your third party shipping carrier (ex: USPS, FedEx, UPS) to submit an insurance claim with them as we are not able to assist with that matter. The fault is with the third party shipping carrier for such damage since it happened out of our hands. We are not responsible for any damages after the order leaves our facility since they were out of our control. If the bonsai tree is still alive but weakened due to shock (leaves are yellow-brownish or leaves have fallen off) then we are happy to assist in proving post-delivery plant shock care instructions via email to revive the plant. Please notify us by email of the issue within 48 hours upon receiving the order in hand. Please email us at with your Order # and the keywords "Shock After Delivery" in the title so we can assist ASAP. For further details, please read our full "Shipping, Return & Cancellation Policy" under Our Policies in our top menu.
