The yae-yankobai is a variety of Japanese apricot which has been popular in gardening since the Edo period (1603-1868). This variety blooms earlier than most apricots, showing off its deep red flowers by mid-February. Rare among apricot trees, this bonsai is in the kabudachi style, where multiple trunks rise together from an exposed root.
