Some of the Most Exquisite Bonsai You'll See Anywhere (if I exaggerate, it's only by a little)

12/14/19

 The illustrious Japanese red pine (Pinus densiflora) won the Prime Minister Award at the 45th Sakufu-ten Exhibition which is being held at the Ueno Green Club. It belongs to Mr. Taiga Urushibata. The pot is Shozan. I cropped the original for a closer look. It's below

Not much today, just some of the most exquisite bonsai you'll see anywhere (if I exaggerate, it's only by a little). They're from the 45th Sakufu-ten Exhibition, which is being held at the Ueno Green Club in Tokyo.  I found them on Boon's timeline. He found them on Makiko Koba's timeline (if you pay attention to Boon, good things will come to you)

 See what I mean when I say 'some of the most exquisite bonsai you'll see anywhere'? No info is provided but this one is clearly a Juniper that looks a lot like a Shimpaku. Though there are other very similar varieties of juniper that are sometimes hard to distinguish from Shimpaku (Itoigawa and Kishu come to mind; same genus, same species, but different varieties)

 

Again no variety given, but the flower and the leaves bring a type of Azalea to mind

 

Does this little guy list to the right? Or is it just me?

 

This can only be a Chojubai flowering quince

 

One of the better Shohin displays you'll see. We'll leave the guessing to you
