Philadelphia Flower Show Bonsai '09

Post  Joe Hatfield on Thu Mar 05, 2009 3:48 am

So I figured I'd post a few of the pics I snapped today. Here is a LINK here for the entire folder.


These first few are from the Rosade Studio in New Hope Pa.















These are The PA Bonsai Society

Thanks for the pix Joe--wont have a chance to get down to the show.

The Thuja at Chase Rosade's display was styled by Salvatore Liporace in 11/08 at a workshop at Rosade Bonsai studio.
It was a great day!!!!!

It would have been nice if Chase had cleaned that thuja up a bit before displaying it.

I think he did repot it. I cant remember what it was in when Salvatore worked on it(eventhough I helped lug it around---it was heavy!!!).

I had been there the week before the show when they were getting things together. I think they had a late start. A few of the trees were said to be not ready. I'm happy with what they showed though I also thought it could have used a little more attention. I think it made the trees look more personal though. People seemed happy with it to0. The one gentlemen had many people asking questions and watching him thin out what I think was a Ponderosa. I can't remember...

The Trident maple

Post  Joe Hatfield on Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:46 pm

Am I wrong to guess that the trident was made of a wire basket with many trees attached at the base and wired together???

I don't believe so. Looks like a field grown and chopped tree. Has that wire basket technique taken off on the east coast of the US?

Sure would like to see a little more wire on most of these trees.

I haven't seen much of it. But I'm aware that some member of this forum have used it.
