First Autumn colour

Post  Guest on Wed Oct 07, 2009 7:13 am

One of the few non natives I have in my garden. This Korean Hornbeam is always the first to let me know winter is on the way.

Wow Will, I love the tree and the pot. Fantastic combination.

Funny that you should mention that this tree is the first to let you know that Winter is on its way, My slightly larger Korean Hornbeam is one of the last trees at home to give in to Autumn affraid

Thanx for sharing Will,

Is that wired currently? I can't tell but I really like the waviness of the branches instead of a simple downward bend. And the colors, Duke, the colors! (American commercial reference. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwlMHJE82Mk)

Thanks Storm Simon and B. Glad you like the combination, the pot is one of my own and one of my first glazings. Complete luck.The tree is wired but only the tips. The structure of the branches was built by pruning ,then wiring.

Mine is going into a show at the New York Botanical Garden in a week and a half. We've already had 40 degrees F, but no real color in the foliage yet.

Cross your fingers for me...

Hi Will,
Thanks, nice fall color. Like Simon, my hornbeams are usually among the last to exhibit fall color.

This year it's coloured up earlier than usual. I can only put it down to the unusually, hot,dry and windy summer we've had in Suffolk. Height of the tree is 8" from the rim of the pot.

Nice tree Will!
My Hornbeam is just starting to turn. It seems you had our New England summer and we had Englands. I think we had maybe 4 or five weekends where it did not rain.

There are differences in American English and English English, I learned. Autumn and fall is another one I believe. But this is a bonsai forum, not a English class, so I dont care about that Cool
I just care about the bonsai.

No pics, but my Malus and Coastal Redwoods gave me the first sign that I need to dig my thermals out.

Leaves turned brown, so I removed them in readiness for Autumn pruning.

Thanks Frk. I much prefer the leaf less image of deciduous trees....... Fortunate for me as I live in the U.K, where trees are bald for half the year.
