Parsonii Juniper Progression

Post  dorothy7774 on Tue Jan 22, 2013 2:17 am

I styled this Juniper last night. Parsonii green branchlets break off very easy. I left more green on than neccessary. Also, looking at the left side of the tree, this is preliminary and will get much shorter. Okay, enough excuses Very Happy

After trimming out the tree last year and working on the jins and shari (twisting trunk shari is natural!). One live line was eliminated:


Last night's result:

LOL. Not a problem at all. Family is most important. I'll definitely take you up on that. Might be a couple of years though, we have a girl on the way due May 29th. Super psyched!!!!!

I can't wait to see what you do with the other one.

Have a great week!!!!

Very nice work, can't wait to see it after the foliage fills in. Thank you for sharing. If I may ask, how tall is this one?

I love parsonii because they tend to form such terrific trunks naturally. But in my experience with them, the foliage is too large for anything less than an 18" plant. Then again, your foliage may be smaller than mine due to your much more intense sun.

I agree with Stan wholeheartedly. The foliage is far too course, and, in my experience, reverts to juvenile at the drop of a hat! But, their vigor and quick building of wood makes them ideal for growing large twisty trunks from cuttings, with the specific intent of grafting better foliage later. Ive got a dozen in the ground after being wired up and smushed for shohin for just this purpose. The bark characteristics aren't too different from Shimpaku either, unlike the similarly vigorous San Jose, with similarly crap foliage. Very nice job Dorothy.

I love where you're going with this tree Dorothy, very nice. This gives me ideas for one of my junipers.
Ryan's blog spot is worth the time to read; lots of information about small (Shohin) pots and great links!
Thank you,
Todd

Hi Stan,

the tree is about 17 inches tall. I purposly left more foliage on as I am planning to transplant as soon as the tree regains vigor.

Thanks,
Dorothy

Thank you Ryan, Todd and Tona. Here is another Parsonii I just finished tonight. Have not worked on the wood yet. What do you think? Very Happy

I bent the tree 6 or 7 years ago. I did not use raffia and actually slit the tree to create a controlled crack:

The area where you bent the trunk looks like mother nature's work. Nice job!

Hi Dorothy,
Really nice work, is it the photos or dont these back bud much?...... as it seems that all the growth is at the ends of each branch?
Cheers Graham

Thank you, Todd and Efi! Graham, I have let the tree go for too long. It will back bud a lot after the trimming. It is also time for a pot.. Wink in a few months.

Best,
Dorothy

Any update on either one of these junipers, Dorothy? I love the deadwood and movement on them.

Update

Post  dorothy7774 on Mon Jun 30, 2014 5:37 pm

Here is an update on both Parsonii junipers. Both were transplanted in the beginning of this year. The first one is not completely styled and fine wired yet. The bottom branches need to catch up. The second one is further developed with strong lower branching. Hope you like them:






Best,
Dorothy

Awesome!! I love these, Dorothy. Can you describe the timeline of the work you did on them? Did you repot before doing anything to them? I have a couple pfizteriana junipers I am working on. I hope they'll develop as well as yours.
