Nice. I've had cotoneaster in the ground for 4 years and it's half that size. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I have one I've been feeding heavily in the ground for the last few years. I think this spring it needs to be dug up and worked on. Thanks for sharing

Kevin, Cotoneaster microphylla or C. dammeri are the ones used more often for bonsai, to my knowledge. They have smaller, glossy, dark green leaves.
C. franchetii is different has bigger leaves kind of pubescent surface, not so bright color.

Hello thanks for commenting
In our local bonsai club people don´t like this specie, maybe for prejudice or other unknown reasons…..
I personally like the specie and the bonsai is going well for the past 10 years.
Just for fun, bellow a shohin cotoneaster microphylla in progress.

I think that the satisfaction from seeds' cultivation is worth the effort (provided one has enough time ahead... Very Happy
Nice going tree!
How well/quick did it respond to ground growing?

The C. microphylla is very beautiful.
However, if I may comment on this my tree, I would certainly remove that jin....
