A Rare Bonsai Occurrence – Harry’s Flowering Privet

06/25/18

PMAIN

This flowering Privet belongs to Harry Harrington (as does the wristwatch). I took the liberty to crop the original photo (see below) for a closer view

Our talented and prolific friend Harry Harrington is at it again. Here’s his caption for the tree shown here (from his fb timeline)…
I think this is quite a rare occurrence, one of my Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) bonsai not only flowering, but in scale with the tree itself! Collected in 2009 from a hedge growing in West London, this has always been one of my favourite Privet.
Height 14″/34cm, 5″/12.5cm trunk diameter. Pot by Victor Harris of Erin Pottery. A progression series for this tree, going back to 2009, can be seen on my website

The original shot provides a bit more scale. That's Harry's arm, artfully  adorned

This is what it looked like freshly dug back in 2009. Impressive eh?
