Shohin Japanese Maple

Post  Twisted Trees on Sat Sep 21, 2013 7:07 pm

This Japanese Maple is about 9" tall.  Mice helped in the styling while it was still in the ground.  You can see where they ate the bark off creating a driftwood style which is unusual for this species.

Very nice little tree! I'd be careful about letting the moss growing into the deadwood. The pot is good with it, too.

Love the tree, great trunk, lovely small foliage, I find the pot looks a bit heavy. I like the pot but not for this tree.

I tend to go a little heavy when I first pot my trees. This is two years from a nursery pot. I'll be looking for something a little more refined for it in the spring.

Still, with the little ones, the probably should live in larger pots and have their dress-up pots held only for special occasions. I think that pot is very attractive as an every-day home.

Yes I tend to do the same for trees that are not on the 'show list' for the season. It improves their health, if they are in a spring show I'll slip pot them in something more comfortable after the show.
