Warm House & Cool House Bonsai

In discussions about keeping bonsai indoors, we refer to 'Cool House' Bonsai and 'Warm House' Bonsai. Cool House refers to trees that are not as cold tolerant, and need winter protection from freezing or severe cold. Most of these trees still need a winter hibernation period for their health. Most homes are too warm for these trees to be kept in the living areas of a home. Here in the coastal Georgia/South Carolina area trees that can be kept in a warm house are best: Ficus, Schefflera, Buttonwood, Norfolk Island Pine, Texas Ebony, Brazilian Raintree, Fukien Tea, Jacaranda, Black Olive, Nicodemia, Aralia, Jades
