This is a follow up on a Japanese red pine post we did a week ago. This time we're focusing on Red pines with muscle, straight from Kokufu, the world's foremost bonsai show

If you've been around bonsai for a while, you most likely know Japanese black pines and Japanese white pines. But do you know the third sister in the trio, Japanese red pines? If you don't. here's another chance for an introduction
