Dig of the day - Yamadori Juniper

Post  F. Waheedy on Sat Feb 27, 2010 6:52 pm

Hi friends,

I know most of yu will be at Willowbog today. It was really hard for me to choose between the show and this juniper. I finally decided to dig up the tree in case the owners changed their mind.

Few visits & knocks at the door and an hours wait outside the house got me this gorgeous junier. I spotted it in one of my neighbors driveway while dropping my son to school. Even though the old couple were emotionally attached to the tree, they made a decision in my favour.
It was pouring this morning when me and Harry once again knocked at their door. It took us a cpl of hours from digging to potting the tree in a mica pot.

I hope you guys like it. I'm really looking forward to your valuable comments.

Regards,

Faisal

Hi Faisal.

Very interesing tree. But I think it is not Juniperus. I would say that it Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera. It's a little different cultivation. Very Happy

I tend to agree with the others. Good luck with it though Faisal, that looks like a stunning trunk. I hope that you've got enough roots for it to prosper.

Hi Pavel & Machiel,

Thanks for your comments.To be honest, Even I'm not 100% sure if its Juniper. I tried posting a picture of the foliage but somehow it didn't work.
I will try another time.

Machiel, I didn't cut back any foliage. Just washed the roots and put it in the pot.

Hi Will, Glad you like it.

Even if it's Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera and not a juniper, it's still a nice one with strong trunk and nice movement.

Regds,

Faisal

Hello Faisal.

It i where you i would cut back on foiledge for one simple reason to prevent tree of wearing itself out!
You have done major cutting on the roots the balance now can be wrong.

If you cut back a little balance will increase.
The big branches witch are cut you can tie down (don't know the English word picture)
This works also on roots it prevents the tree from bleeding to death.
Just tie a little wire round the edge and tie down firmly!

Hi Machiel,

Thanks for the diagram. As you say, I will cut back a little to increase the balance. I hope the tree survives and in a cpl of years I will think about major carving and styling.

Thanks for your input.

Regards,

Faisal

Hello again Faisal!

I'd rather cut back a little dramaticly,and drasticly........take notice as this isn't a juniper but indeed a Chamasyparis blah di blah!
They don't bud back as i know!!!!!

And in years yes, this will be a joy to work on!
I already see drama in the tree as in carving and with nice draped branches and foiledge Crying or Very sad ThumbsUp

I've seen plenty of those in garden centers here in the US. I'm pretty sure it is a juniper, just don't know the variety. I just hope you collected enough root. Do you have experience with grafting?

Thanks for your comment Peter. someone else said the same thing. It's a Juniper. Just not sure what variety. I ain't got much experience with grafting. no. but it's a bit too early to do anything. I'll wait for a year or so before touching it.

Cheers,

Faisal

i know of a few of these. One of my gardens i work in sometimes has one. I always assumed it was a juniper but never had a close look. The lady who owns it calls it a firework tree.I've had my eye on it for ages to go in my front garden. I'll try and get a photo sometime. Great trunk on your one. you have quite a collection on the go now.
I'm off to the dragon auction for a day out now. cheers

Hi Machiel,

I'm not sure either. Looking at the links it does look like Chamasyparis but then some say it is a Juniper. Here is a close up of the foliage which matches with some on flicker.

Hope it makes a good Bonsai. Worst part is waiting for at least 2 years before I could think of styling / re potting. But then I think it's wort waiting :-)

Hi Faisal, i dont think its a juniper either, but as pavel suggested earlier- a cham or some sort. hard to really say which without getting a real look.
It should bud back okay but you will need to really get the older wood on the branches clean and airy to encourage it to happen. Looks like a fair amount of root and with you having removed a bit of green, i would think you will have a good chance with that one surviving, keep it out of the wind!
Nice find.
regards Nick

When i looked at the flicker and then at the close ups I was thinking I was wrong before and now think its a cham.

She has quite a few tasty shrubs in her garden. She loves her garden and that one especially, so i don't think she will give it to me. its a shame as she is so old and unwell she can't get in the garden any more.

I find it hard to bring up the subject of whether she would leave me the shrubs when she finally goes. Embarassed

Hi.

I'm pretty sure this is a Cham. Pisifera Filifera. I have one in my garden.
There's a little drawback with pruning these species, they will not bud back on the old wood so be very carefull with pruning branches ! When the tree starts growing the long shoots, just pinch those shoots by hand, it'll make the foliage more dense.

Great tree you have.

Not a juniper, we've always referred to them as false cypress... They do not bud back, Good luck beautiful.
