White bogonvilea in blossom

White bogonvilea in blossom
I found this tree two years ago, only seven months ago
I designed this tree preliminary design. I removed the large leaves as long as they grew, until the tree began to blossom.
The pot is temporary only for Training.



Two weeks ago

Oh now that is a stunner and with the right pot when the time comes it will be what we call in Scotland a wee stonker. That's a compliment in case you're wondering Laughing It's nice to see a white flowering one of such quality too.

I assume it grows well in your climate. What sort of temperatures do you get summer and winter?

btw where did you find it?

Thanks you for the compliment Fiona.
The climate in Israel is hot hot in summer and not so cold in the winter. Approximately 5 to 20 degrees in winter and 30 to 40 degrees in summer, so everything is growing rapidly here.
This tree and others like him I find in some gardens renovations. Apart from thebonsai nursery that I have, I also do landscaping.
so i have access to some excellent raw material

Moshe - what height is your tree?

I acquired a small bougie last autumn which has made it through a Scottish winter (indoors of course). It's doing vey well but I haven't a clue what to do with it. I'd like it to develop in girth but I suspect it will take some considerable time for it to make any real gain. It is currently about 30cm high but the trunk is no more than 1.5cm in diameter.

Would be interested in your estimate (or indeed the input of anyone who has grown them in the northern UK) of how long it would take a bougie to develop in a cooler climate.

No, no, not at all: some countries seem to be so far away, it seems so hard to get inside, I was just wondering what, as a far located neighbour, I could see when looking above the fence, that's all.

Don't be paranoid, I know that I won't get shot at (or will I?) if I peer over the fence, we're both civilised people, aren't we?... We can share a love for art, beauty and life over cultural barriers, can't we?...

I remember someone posting a picture of an olive tree in the old IBC forum a few years ago to celebrate the anniversary of his country: that was a good choice, a symbol of peace, the sign of a new world opening for everyone. My youngest son's name is Noah, and he was nearly called... Moshe! (my ex-wife first choice!!!) A smell of politics? Hmmm, on second thought, yes, maybe.

I apologise, I'm sure that your comments won't be off colour when olive-trees from "across the wall". Sorry, that's cultural: being european, i have many reasons to hate walls, and as a child like any child in the world, I remember the pleasure I had to climb over walls.

Trees have no borders, they grow where they shall, and as the Bible says, one should not live in a town with no greenery, or something (I'll have to check Iris's signature).

Great tree by the way.

I think the current level of bonsai activity in Israel is due not only to prosperity, but to the fact that trees are an important part of Jewish culture. We have a special blessing for fruit trees in bloom, and trees have their own special holiday. In late Biblical and Talmudic times, Israel was largely agricultural.
If there were any bonsai growers in the Palestinian territories, they would be growing the same trees, olives (collected), bougainvilleas, and various native species.

If you want to know what the level of bonsai is in the Arabian countries, go here: www.bonsailandscapinguae.com/
There are also bonsai (mallsai?) for sale in Saudi Arabia.

I must admit I did feel a twitch in my Moderator's nose earlier but one thing I have learned recently as a Mod is that if you stand back, the good people of this forum generally sort stuff out for themselves. Especially when it is likely to be a quirk of the language translation that has led to any real or perceived misunderstandings. I am glad that has proved to be the case here.

Before we move off the politics thingy, an observation: I sat in a park in Bristol yesterday watching little kids of all ages, colours and no doubt creeds playing along together nicely. How nice it was to behold and I sicnerely hope no stupid adults go along a muddy things for them in their later years.

Definitely no walls.

Right. Back to the boogie. Or the Bougainvillea at least.

I obviously can't say what special things to do for a bougie in Scotland, Fiona, but I will say that they prefer to be abused. Keep the soil very try. Give them full sun (bake them if possible).

If you can keep them under bright light in the winter indoors, they should bloom all the time so long as you give them just enough water to survive. Low fertilization, too.

This picture is from the end of a winter indoors here. It lost all its leaves, grew them back in a week or two in May, then bloomed.
