Probably best for you to look for local tree and shrub species that grow fast and have small leaves.

How much time to you need to create a bonsai?

Patience is something you need to have when working with bonsai but I probably felt the same way you did when I started. At first I had a bunch of trees that I had grown from seed as well as a number of pre-bonsai that needed many years of growing before they looked decent enough to be called bonsai. I ended up purchasing a few bonsai trees that I would say were 80%-90% finished. I did this in order to satisfy my desire to have some good quality bonsai material that I could display. I made the mistake early on of putting unfinished pre-bonsai material into small bonsai containers. This only stunted their growth and did not help me with my patience problem. I eventually learned that it was worth the wait to put trees in very large and shallow containers at first and give them several years to grow vigorously. If you want a tree that grows quickly stick with the ficus species such as Ficus salicifolia or Ficus microcarpa. Spend a little extra money and buy a tree that someone has grown for many years and that you would just need to style to your liking and repot into the appropriate bonsai pot. Eventually you will learn that having patience and growing a tree to your liking is what truly gives you bonsai satisfaction. Good luck
