You Don’t See Bonsai Like These Everyday

12/08/18

shimpalu

You don't see bonsai like this every day. For me, there's a temptation to grab my thinning shears. But first, it's a good idea to take it in as is. And there's a lot to take in. Especially the sheer weight of the remarkably lush foliage. And, if you can pull your eyes down to the trunk, the play of the living veins and deadwood is striking. Unfortunately the tree is not identified (nor attributed), but it looks a lot a like a Shimpaku juniper

Normally we shy away from unattributed and unidentified bonsai. But in this case the trees are so unusual that I couldn’t resist.

Root-over-rock pine. This one is similar to the tree above. At least when it comes to dense foliage. If you take a close look at the base, you can distinguish the trunk from the rock
