progression of a P. sylvestris cascade

Post  MerschelMarco on Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:08 pm

This Pine I have for quite a long time. I found it about 1998 as a young plant in a quarry.

The hole recent crown was developed from just one single bud.




The first Photo is from 2001 after setting the tree from the growing field into this container.




Two years later, the crown became much denser.



After another two years, the Pine was set into this handmade sandstone pot. The cascade branch looks a little bit strange.



March 2009 the cascade was restyled. The new pot looks much better I think.



The tree in the same year after plucking the needles.



A recent photograph. The cascade branch was removed to get a more compact design. By now the bark looks very mature.
Height 26 cm, width (with pot) 52 cm

Regards,
Marco

Thanks for posting your progression! I deffinately think rasing the lower branch to a semi cascade was a brilliant move that pushes the image much farther than a full cascade!

Excellent tree. I, however, liked its first pot best. ~

The plastic one Jim ? Twisted Evil

I'm intrigued by the sandstone one, are you saying it is ceramic that resembles sandstone or actual stone.

Either way a very powerful shape, that I have put in my file of ideas for future pot projects, thanks

Marco, nice pine! I wonder, what's the trick to growing a cascade in the ground? Plant the root ball above ground in a pot with no bottom? Thanks!
