Chojubai White

Post  fredtruck on Fri Feb 15, 2013 8:44 pm

This is my chojubai white flowering quince. In contrast to the more familiar chojubai red (which you can find elsewhere in this forum), the chojubai white does not have the ramification the red variant does. I prefer the white, however, because it has larger, and more flowers and yet retains the angular qualities of all quince.

The pot is Chinese, porcelain, and hand-painted. There is a raised black outline around all the figures. The pot is signed, but I am not sure if the name given, Wen Hui, is actually a name, or an address, because there is a Wen Hui Street in Yixing City where many famous kilns are.

Hi fred,
I have over 150 looks at my red chojubai post but nary a comment.

So i didn't want you to have to go thru the same thing. Smile

I appreciate you posting and I love the pot. It goes without saying that I love the dwarf quince!

Today was the first sunny day here in as long as I could remember, so I got ambitious and did some early repotting. Two of the four were quince Smile

Thanks, Dick. I guess we can have a back and forth, so to speak! I have more quince I'll be posting in a few weeks. Stay tuned.

Lovely pot. About the tree; have you thought of standing it up a little and wiring the branches to accomodate the new angle? I think it will dramatically improve the look of the tree.

In the past, I've had a more raised angle. I will think about this again when I repot in the fall. Thanks for your comment.

Several months later, this little tree is still blooming like crazy. It is now as close to being in full bloom as it gets.

I agree with a different angle Smile But always anxious when i wire my chojubai. Always best to work with this year's growth after it hardens while still pliable.

Nice quince, but the way the tree is laying on the ground, it looks like it fell over. Not a style to my taste. Lifting the trunk up some would make a better presentation in my opinion. The trunk laying down on does not help display the best feature of this tree, the flowers. But of course, it is a mater of personal taste.

Beautiful pot by the way.

It is a very nice pot. Can you tell us something about it?

I too think your tree would be better served by being a tad more upright.

Last year, when I was in Taiwan, I bought this pot from a master in Tainan, Taiwan. He said he bought it in China. There is a chop on the pot. My daughter-in-law, who is Taiwanese, translated the artist's name as Wen Hui, but this may also be an address in the Yixing area. The pot is porcelain. The painting, which is done by hand, is enamel. All the black outlining is raised.

As for the angle of the planting, I realize it is extreme, but my concept here is that this tree is in the uncomfortable area between slant and semi-cascade. The pot is not a cascade pot, but the idea is that the tree is growing out horizontally above a precipice. The tree actually does go very slightly below the rim of the pot, as this photograph will show.

Pictured here are Master Jung of Tainan, Taiwan and myself. As you can see, Master Jung deals in very large trees. The premna between us is a prize winner, as are many of his other trees. I was very lucky to meet him.

Here are a couple of my white chojubai which blossomed last spring. I was too busy to photograph them this spring, but wanted to share their photos.
