Dick, perhaps it would help if you gave a botanical name for the tree as I am uncertain what tree you mean. Is it a tree you have or one you are planning on getting too?

just googled it, it's a type of Japanese acer palmatum maple, so I guess what applies to acer palmatum works for the katsura ...

Looks very nice. Saw from bonsai4me a picture of one (maybe not dwarf), with the title Acer Palmatum Katsura

That's really what I was trying to clear up. There is a katsura which as you say is a type of Acer. But there is also a katsura tree in its own right (Cercidiphyllum). And to confuse things further there is also Kadsura.  Just wanted to be sure before weighing in with any comments.

Thanks fiona....in my research, I shuddered when I saw the maple connection. Ought to be a law for deliberately causing confusion.

Cercidiphyllum japonicum nana is what I was asking about. Known for their beautiful fall foliage and it's been a journey to even find a small start, It's thin and rangey, I hate to try working on it without pre-knowledge of how it breaks back etc.

I always like to start my search here, but I may have to consult the curator at the bonsai gardens I volunteer at. David de Groot is getting ready to celebrate this fall their 25th year at the pacific rim Bonsai gardens at Weyerhaeuser in federal way, Washington-USA.

As always i will be happy to share anything I earn Smile

Hi, I'm working on a Cercidiphyllum for 10 years now, but no nana. It needs a lot of water, it has nice thin twigs and it has way too long internodes and I still haven't got the utimate trick to make them smaller.

Here is the story from the beginning mixed up with 2 other trees:

There is also a thread right here on IBC about Cercidiphyllum that you can refer to as well.

you can treat "nana" the same as the full size tree.
