A purple leaf crab apple

Post  Vlad on Tue Jul 26, 2016 7:03 am

I like the deciduous trees for their constant changes of appearance throughout the whole year.   Maybe they do not have the same dignity and calm that is characteristic for the old specimen of the pines or the wild, dynamic beauty of junipers or yews.    Their beauty consists in the joy they bring to our lives - kisses under the cherry blossom, apple pie, plum brandy - just to name a few...

On the top of the list of the deciduous trees is the purple leaf crab apple for me.  And here it is why:

The purple of the new growth



The beauty of the flowers



The shot of fruits will come next year Rolling Eyes

The autumn colours




The shots above are related to this pre-bonsai.  July 2016, new growth, before wiring.   Current height excluding the sacrifice top branch 19 cm  +/-




The yamadori in 2013
