If Fat Albert is one of the large foliage/ coarse branch varieties, I would give it a miss.

Do you think 'Fat Albert' Col. Spruce won't suit larger bonsai either?

Thanks,

John . . . good on you for asking before buying! We see a lot of folks who do just the opposite (you know who you are!).

Hey Jim,

I like to experiment and I am definitely one of them. The below tree (Picea pungens x glauca 'Fat Albert') was a nursery material for landscaping around 5ft tall. It has been shortened and jinned. The base is around 3" wide. This tree is far from finished, and honestly the design could be changed in the future. But I think it has potential for a large bonsai.



And here is a possible future design:


Thanks,
AH
