Bonsai Dreamscapes

10/30/19

 

This rock-juniper planting is reminiscent of some Penjing plantings we've featured over the years. Even the concrete tray with its look of marble fits the type (see below) 

We usually experience some excitement when we discover a new artist and this time is no exception. In this case it's Stan Cox of Bonsai Dreamscapes. I like the lack of artifice in Stan's plantings. Like someone playing around and having fun with rock/plant combinations. I know that Stan is a professional and there's more to it than that, but what is communicated has that enjoyable and inviting quality that might make you want to give it try. A successful outcome for sure

 

Stan's name for this desert stone-scape is El Dorado. Don't quote me, but I think the trees are boxwood

 


 This one is called Benevolence. The trees look like dwarf Alberta spruce


Karst. The plants look like Dwarf Japanese garden junipers (Juniperus procumbens 'nana'), as do the trees in the planting at the top of this post

 

Secret Falls. More of the same type junipers

 

Stan makes his own concrete made-to-look-like-marble trays. This might be the one under the planting at the top of this post

 

 By the way, Stan's plantings are for sale. Here's your Dreamscapes link
