Another Bonsai That Looks Like a Tree - Before & After


Before & after Swamp paperback (Melaleuca ericfolia) by Gerard Schoofs. No dramatic change here, just some deft trimming that opens the branches up enough for a bird to fly through (inspired by John Naka)

Today we've got another bonsai that looks like a tree (remember John Naka's quote* from last week?). It's a Melaleuca ericifolia, commonly known as Swamp paperbark. It's in the Myrtle family, Myrtaceae and is native to south-eastern Australia

By the way, if you think you've seen this tree before, it was probably here. I prepared this post while being unaware that it's a duplicate (more or less). It's a long complicated story having to do with altitude sickness, jet lag and sleep deprivation. I hope you enjoy this new value added version


Before. Looks pretty good


After. Looks even better
