Kingsville update

Post  Tom Simonyi on Tue Jul 21, 2015 1:57 pm



I have been caring for this tree for about five years now and having worked with it some this past week, I once again realized my only regret has been that I did not purchase more of these when I had the opportunity to do so...this tree was among several that Dale Cochoy had for sale several years ago at a time when he was thinning out his collection.  They were all lovely trees.

Regards,
Tom

That's a pretty little(?) tree, Tom, but I'd really like to see the foliage pads start to merge more, rather than being little globes at the end of branches.

Tom,

Like your Kingsville very much. They are a very nice species to work with.

How do you overwinter?

Thanks,

Augustine

Hi, Augustine....thanks for the kind words.....kingsville is one of my favorite species to work with as well. Regarding overwintering where I live (northern WV, about 80 miles south of Pittsburgh PA) - I site them with my other tropicals under fluorescents in an unheated garage from about late November until mid-May or so. They have done very well utilizing that regimen. Hope that helps.

Best regards,
Tom

Tom, I'm thinking you may not need to link up the "globes" of foliage so much as open up each one to reveal the branch structure. A common mistake I think folks make is to prune and pinch their trees into little shrubs that look like they were removed from hedges. No structural definition. I like to observe older trees in the wild, and they seem to have rather long branches with the foliage concentrated at the ends of the branchlets. You can see the entire superstructure of the tree, and it looks right to me and is awesome when duplicated in bonsai. To each his own, of course.

Tom,

I for one, am just getting my colour back, after turning bright green from envy. Yours is beautiful.

Yes natural bonsai is nice, but why can't one have a couple of trees that are bonsai miniatures of topiary trees?

I for one try everything. And look at this gorgeous tree!

Love and Light
