Little Hawthorn

Post  Guest on Thu Nov 26, 2009 4:24 pm

I've had this Hawthorn for three years. Dug from a local quarry, it measures, 6.5 " 17 cm. Lots of character and age for one so small

I like this! Your wiring is right on the spot! The pot is actually very nice except for being a bit large as you say.

Nice one Will. I'll be expecting this in the BSA show fairly soon.

Keep us posted.

this is attractive tree. In my opinion wiring of branches is good for pine, not for deciduous tree. I made sketch of more naturalistic tree. What do you think?

I think Milan has a good point, as well as a decent drawing/sketch.

Hi Milan.Thanks for the sketch. This tree has a long way to go as far as branching is concerned. Most branches are primary and a few with secondary. All secondary and tertiary ramification will be an up and outward motion.

Will,
Another nice one. Great work, especially in spotting the tree & collecting it. Also nice job on the pot. We have some nice hawthorn here in Oklahoma, but it is typically plagued with a seasonal fungus that makes them difficult to grow as bonsai....or so I am told by the gentleman who has helped me learn the elm collecting ropes.
Have you found this to be true in your location?

Super tree. Thanks for posting.

Hi Neil. Dont have that problem over here, whats the fungus your Hawthorns suffer with? Must be treatable though. Trees of the Rose family, can suffer with Blight and leaf curl but its manageable.

Will,
Not too sure exactly. I would need to ask a few more questions. Apparently he has attempted to several with the same results over the years, while also experimenting with various fungicides and cultural practices. Some kind of rust I believe.

Maybe I'll give one a try if I run across one while collecting elm & hackberry this spring.

In Illinois where I am originally from, the "cockspur hawthorn" is very abundant. Its surprising I have never seen it used as bonsai.

Will,
I just love this Hawthorn, right up my street.
I've been looking for a lovely little Hawthorn to add to my Shohin collection but I doubt if I'll find one anywhere near as good No

Oh well, back to dreaming of the day..................

Well thanks, that's very nice of y.... Oh! Right! Thought you were talking about me.

But seriously, that's a nice wee beaut of a Hawthorn. To cross-reference this to your other thread, if this is one you are planning on offloading in the anti-OCD attempt, I'll quite happily take it off you.

As much as I'd like you to have it, I think it is a little large for you Fiona. Even on tippy toes and with back combed hair, I doubt you'd measure past the first branch. Such a shame.
