same link we gave you before, but thought the folks here would like to see it too.

The elms are at the bottom of the page, and they are amazing.  I can tell you first hand, because I put some of these into the pots and had previously spent a bit of time with a saw removing sacrifice branches that were taller than me.

I own 3 of these Seju elms, as well 2 of his Hokaido elms which are awesome as well.

I'll second the Evergreen gardens reference.  Brent has sizes from new cuttings, up to 6 or 8 inch diameter trunks on the corkbark elms.

of course, be prepared to wait 10 years or more to get corky bark when starting at that size.

He does have some medium sized stuff not pictured on the website - things in the $25 - $150 range.  Send him an email and he can tell you about them.  Those will get you to at least a shohin sized bonsai in just a few years time.
