Dazzling Deciduous Bonsai, with or without Leaves

10/06/19

Doing the twist. I don't know why Pomegranates (Punica granatum) often tend to twist, but they do. I cropped the original photo (below) for an up close look

We've got a real treat for you today. If you like masterpiece bonsai that is. Or more specifically, masterpiece bare boned* deciduous bonsai  

Though there are now several top notch bonsai shows in this world, there are none quite like Kokufu, the granddaddy of them all. Kokufu is held annually and though no year is given with these photos, based on the trees I suspect they're from a recent exhibition

 

Magnificent. There's something about Japanese beeches (Fagus crenata). Interestingly (or maybe not) you seldom see them outside of Japan

 

Stewartias (Stewartia monadelpha) are so distinctive with their reddish bark, clean lines and strong nebari

 

Another distinctively Stewartia

 

Japanese maple (Acer palmatum var. matsumurae) with what looks like volcanic rock

 

Trident maple (Acer buergerianum) with three trunks. It's hard to tell if it's one tree (one root system) or two or maybe three individual trees, though it looks like two separate trees (left) were originally placed together because they fit so well

 

The original photo of the Pomegranate at the top of this post

 

  *Finally, we've got one with leaves, though they're almost at the end of their cycle. It's another Japanese beech
