Serissa Bonsai: Japanese Sun Rose Care 

Your plant resembles a Japanese snow rose, says horticulturist Melinda Myers. Bonsai are made from this tough plant, which is evergreen in cooler areas.   

It likes part shade and moist, well-draining soil in the landscape. It dislikes wet or dry soil. If soil moisture and temperatures are excessive, it may shed leaves.

Despite its widespread name, the Japanese snow rose is not related to roses like Knock Out roses.   

This evergreen shrub, on the other hand, belongs to the family of plants known as coffee plants.  

It has a gnarled trunk, tiny leaves, and star-shaped white or pink blooms in spring and fall. Don't anticipate coffee beans from it.   

Unlike succulents like haworthia, these sensitive plants won't survive if the soil dries out, so water often.
