Corylopsis spicata

Post  John Quinn on Sun Apr 04, 2010 1:45 am

This flowered better this year than last year, but still not as fully as I would have liked. I have included a virtual to show roughly how I plan to prune it back.

It's a very nice species, too rarely seen as bonsaï.

Yours is getting the right way.

Hi John.

That's a really nice tree, and something we don't see much of. I have a friend that grows a couple of varieties, I guess I should do some digging around.

Tell us about your tree - where did you get it and how long have you had it?

Russell

Russell, I bought this from Bob Blankfield during one of Bill Valavanis' symposia in Rochester in I believe 2003. I first repotted it into this pot by Milan Klika in 2004.

Dear John

Very nice to see the Corylopsis again !
It does look less blossoms as i remember from some years ago,
but still looking very beautiful !

In Your virtual it looks like the branches are cut back a bit,
as i look at the tree ,there is a strong branch growing on the lefthand side.
For my feeling , on that side it is natural to show more 3th branches with more leaves.

John , some time ago i send You about 3x the same PM.
Few weeks ago send You a new one .
I´m not sure You recieved all the PM´s , would You please look
and let me know?
Thank You
Kind regards
Morea

I recalled having seen an article on Winter Hazel written by Boon, and have found it HERE

Found this old thread and have a question about Corylopsis. When do you drastically prune?

I would have thought that it could be done at repotting time or possibly after flowering. However I found an article about training Corylopsis spicata in an old Bonsai Today Magazine which was translated from Japanese. The article said that it should be pruned right after the leaves fall.

I am reluctant to prune heavily in autumn due to possibility of die back (and do not have a greenhouse). Therefore, can I do drastic pruning in late winter/early spring?

Also, this is a beautiful bonsai and a species which I like very much.

Thank you,

Take a look at the link I posted in the above reply.
Sadly, this tree sustained significant damage when we had bad storms a year ago. The main trunks were damaged and resulted in significant die-back. Ultimately, I pruned all the trunks back and am 'starting over' but with no real expectations for the near future.
