Types of plants to use for bonsai

Some plants are very difficult to make to adapt to the shallow pots and restricted growth. Trees or shrubs which are used more commonly for bonsai - and adapt quite well are evergreens such as Pine, Cypress, Camelia, Azalea, Pomegranate, Serissa, Fig and Cedar. Deciduous trees such as Cherry, Maple, Zelkova and Beech are also prime candidates. The above plants really do make beautiful bonsai - while also being traditional plants which have been used in this art for centuries.
