That luma is a nice little tree. I've been thinking about getting one for a while now. Looks like it has some similarities to brush cherry?

Shohin Forests

Post  Rob Kempinski on Wed Dec 28, 2011 3:33 am

Shohin Forests - an oxymoron? here are two Willow Leaf Fig (ficus Nerifolia) shohin forests.

One defoliated in a pot by Sansai (Tom Benda - Czech Republic). Trees are about 6 inches tall. This was on a slate slab but that was used in a different project so the trees played musical pots. Bagpiper



The next is about 8 inches tall and on a Chinese simple shallow oval.

Lovely little trees in this thread. Thanks for showing them.

This nerafolia was cut down from a larger tree about two years ago. It is 13cm tall (from rim)

I'm glad you like my trees. The juniper is 34 cm/13.4 inches high. And the taxus has 31 cm/12.2 inches.

Here are also the before images.

I like your Willow Leaf Ficus (then again I'm a sucker for them I love you ) Let's see it when the ramification extends a bit more.

Hey Nik,

Nice job. The juniper looks elegant on the stone. Is it a bit tall for shohin though?

The Yew looks chunky. Will you let it fill in or plan to keep the foliage sparse? BTW who made that pot?

I think the juniper is just at the upper limit. But I would it still qualify it as shohin.
Surelly, I plan to make the foilage of the yew more compact. That photo was taken just after the styling. After this years' spring growth it should improve a lot.
The pot is I would guess japanese. There is a symbol underneeth. If you're interested I can take a photo of it and post it here.

Here is one more shohin of mine. A little chineese juniper itoigava planted into a Klika pot.

Again before and after.


Here is the shohin exhibited in Italy in a three-point display. The composition got an award by the Italian IBS. Smile

Regarding the pot, you guys have so many great potters in your area I as wondering if it was local made. Nice pot and interesting shape.

Shohin Updates- Mardi Gras Parade?

Post  Rob Kempinski on Thu Feb 23, 2012 4:57 pm

In this neck of the woods, the winter seems to have passed with only a few minor cold spells so far.
This year I built temporary cold frames for my tropical trees and left them alone for a few months. Since the winter was mild it was over 90 F degrees some days inside the frames. The trees seemed to have enjoyed it. Here are a few coming out back into the open looking none too worse for the wear.

This is a Haggarbush, or Clerodendum, from Puerto Rico. I repotted it into this painted Japanese pot in early December and already roots are coming out the bottom holes.


A close up of the pot. Although recently purchased, I have forgotten the name of the artist that painted it. Embarassed


This little Nea Buxifolia was a cutting originated in Florida from a tree originally from Puerto Rico.
Pot is by Dick Reyerson of California.


Finally, Creepy Hollow, a Cedar Elm, as a temperate tree, it did not have to go into the cold frame tent and it is still asleep. Cedar Elms seems to be the last trees to bud out for me each year. Pot by Horst Heinzreitler of Austria.

Virginia Creeper as a shohin

Post  Rob Kempinski on Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:06 am

A small Virginia Creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia, a common vine in the woods near us, as a shohin. Pot by Dale Cochoy.
As a vine it is a bit hard to control but it responds well to defoliation, which I will do in a month or so.
