wow
maybe it s me...but i didn t understand so much your "stand technique"
anyway...for the cultivar..baccata or cuspidata
it is not so important to me...
i will show you the tree during the winter with the blue-brown colour it makes
maybe it is determinent

It looks like it had been standing knee deep in water from the mark around the pot. A very good thing that you took over its care and were able to nurse it back to health.

Salut Cram. Nice taxus. I should have said earlier on, but that tree IS cuspidata. Coarser than baccatta as Kev pointed out. Both seem to colour up in winter, cuspidata being more pronounced and even when so. Possibly a sign that baccatta is tougher? How did you get on with the old wire / marks you inherited with the tree?

yes it was on a plate of water Crying or Very sad ...in chalky water Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
in fact ...to be honnest ...
i was a little surprised when i found the old picture
i did not remeber how much it was ugly

it s just more pleasure for me... sunny

for the wires marks
i made a jin with the old principal branch...
it was really too much marked...i coudn t even wire it again and move it...it surely broke
the second branch like this was sadly the head trunk
for this one...i can t do anything else than waiting the reparation of time...i suppose

It looks like you saved that tree hands down. The wires must have been strangling the life right out of it. Great job Cram!

sunny thank you very much!
about the styling...a good friend of mine...(herve dora..a really talentuous french bonsaika)
made me a drawing very impressive of a possible evolution of this taxus
i love this way ....very much dynamic(do this word exist in english?)
what do you think about it....ibc people?

i agree
i will surely follow this way at the next styling
in fact it is just cut two branches ..move the head and change the poting angle
no big work
it s the kind of drawing that explain how much little details are important

up
marf...well
i still don t know which front i will choose Laughing
i like the two options
i work more on the first one so the lowest branch is made for it...but it can move
and the head is going more for this front also...but i can change
Basketball

which one do you prefer?

hello abcd!
well no ..i still like this branch if i keep this style
for the moment this branch is placed for the other front
if i take this front ..i will pull back this branch closer of the obsvervator...

to leave it ...i think that i have to choose herve's schetch as kind of direction

but maybe later...i only have to cut

hi cram,

i do prefer the back as a front also (on foto) the dead wood and the live vein seem to have much more character there.(i find them better than on the actual front where the junction seem to be a bit straight and heavy, on the foto again).

the good point in my opinion is that with such a pot you can enjoy it on every angle,and think about it without disturbtion(?)
