Little Red Winter

Post  kenduncan on Tue Jan 26, 2010 11:53 pm

Week before last it was the coldest week and a half that we have had in the last 20 years. The small pond at My Grandson's house was frozen over.
I have a few Euonymus fortuni that have the best red color that I have seen on them. My guess is that it is from the cold weather.

This one is in a Sara Rayner pot.

This one is in a Ronnie Dimig pot.

Wintercreeper. It is widely used as a groundcover, but here in the North Euonymous fortunei is deciduous.
Iris

Nice tree Ken. My nandina is also very red right now, so I thought I would share it here.

Nice colors guys.
Unfortunately lots of trees here in Florida are brown and probably dead due to the cold snap.

I have had acouple of trees go brown for the opposite reason - hot dry days!! This in spite of watering nearly every mornning, and getting the occasional summer showers. I've started to keep all my shohin- and mame-in-training on beds of stones in shallow trays, filled with water. If the roots need to they can go for a dip, just reach through that grating. ..

Aloha Ross,

Question, How old is your Nandina and did you grow it from a seedling? Also, like the bonsai put to.

Thanks Tim. I've had this for about two years now I think. It was originally about 4ft tall, growing in the middle of a crowded flowerbed. My parents gave the flowerbed a makeover, and they pulled this guy out and potted him up with potting soil in a huge pot. I found it in their backyard, cut it down to size and plunked it in a bonsai pot.

Mahalo (Thank You) Ross,

Nice job.... it has a nice trunk movement. I seen people grow them in there yards here on Maui and thought that it would make a nice bonsai but never saw one until now. Mahalo for sharing. Very Happy

Yah, a lot of my step mom's garden plants have lost much color and leaves. Also, my bonsai have browned a lot due to the weather. It's been the coldest here since I can remember.

It's not looking good for some of my bonsai trees - I believe I lost some treasured ones and forget about much of my developmental crops that I merely covered and did not bring indoors. pale Sad

Dear viewers

After a long period of frost and snow here in the Netherlands
the temps went above 0*C last week.

Two days a bit of sun and there was a little red !
It is a Hamamelis with red flowers.
Show You the flowers , as the tree is still a stick in the pot.
But covered with these beautiful reds at the moment.
Enjoy
Kind regards
Morea
