What do you see in this Groundsel tree?

Post  PeacefulAres on Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:58 pm

I've mentioned these trees vaguely, but the more I work with the few I've collected, the more I'm loving them. I think this one has some real potential, so I want to have some kind of shape in mind while I work with it in the future. What comes to your mind when looking at it?

I know nothing about this species or its growth habit, but your picture reminded me of this hawthorne raft progression of Harry H's.

I've always had a strange affection for the tree in the link.

That is a pretty cool tree.

This species is a very powerful grower, once containerized. The trees I've collected have pushed buds 5 days after collection, from what I've read, they're adapted to a lot of different soils, and have considerable salt tolerance. They seem to have no trouble rooting, even after a severe root pruning. This tree was collected about a month ago, and it's are already escaping the colander. I may need to think about slip potting it, or putting it in the ground.

I realize it's just a crappy MSpaint drawing, but here is what I'm seeing in my head. What do you guys think?


I think I'll take some time later with a pencil and paper and do a real drawing.
