little Juniper

Post  MerschelMarco on Thu Mar 14, 2013 11:06 am

This Juniper is one of my first trees. I found it about 1993. 2005 it was almost exhibition ready, but then for unknown reasons it began to die.



2007 almost the complete crown was dead, only the first branch seemed to be mor or less healthy. 2008 the Juniper seemed to be recovered, but the styling over more than 12 years was totaly ruined.



In autumn 2008 i ventured on a careful restyling.



The last years i changed the crown once again. The top of the tree was cut of and the crown rebulit more to right side. Now the tree seems to be quite mature and the whole thing seems to find a happy end after 20 years.




Regards,
Marco

It is a blessing that the juniper has survived and after those changes has got such a nice shape.

Is there such a term in bonsai? Very Happy
The story of your juniper suggests there isn't.
What kind of juniper exactly is it?

I don`t know exactly, but it might be J. squamata.

Perhaps a blessing in disguise? I certainly prefer the new image of this tree, not that the original was bad.
