Autumn Colors at BonsaiInBuffalo.com

Post  Roy Wixson on Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:00 am

Living in Western New York State where one can experience the colors of autumn has its benefits. My small Trident Maple growing over a rock is a case in point. I began this tree about ten years ago by fusing three seedlings, each then having the diameter of a pencil, together. It has been growing on the the rock right from the beginning. Today, the tree is about 14 inches in height above the pot and te trunk is almost 2 inches in diameter.

I agree, but would add . . . NOT blue.

Well, at least not THAT blue!

Personally, I like tridents in DARK blue or green - but you're really wide open. I'd do oval and a more shallow pot. I'd also shorten the first branch on the left and shift weight to the right, and move the tree to the left side of the pot.... but that's just my taste, maybe not yours.

Really pretty, you've done a great job.

Its great for you to be sharing a picture of one of your beautiful trees on here Roy. The color looks amazing on the trident. I always thought this tree looked good in this pot, the thickness of the rock at the base calls for a deeper pot. But i guess using the trunk thickness for depth of pot does not apply when root over rock.?. Either way , in ten years you have made an amazing tree.

Thanks for your insights. The pot IS oval, however, the picture just does not show it that clearly.
