Great progress. I'd let the bottom branch grow wild for a few years to fatten up the first branch.

Can we see a close up of the chop? I'd be interested to see how you handled that.

Another one with a great future!

I confess I didn't know this species, which is also present in France around the Mediterranean area, and sometimes a little further north: it's closely related to Olea europea and the info I got mention that it can stand easily -15° C when in the ground.

Thanks for posting, not only is it beautiful, but I've learned something thanks to you Wink

Phillyrea is still not so pupular for bonsai, although species has many good characteristics like small leaves, interesting bark on old tree, buds well ...

Here it is. I need a proper tool to fix some details.

Very nice species (almost unrecognizable from olive) and also a great specimen!! Checked your blog and it seems that it has much more very promising buddies Very Happy, I will be curious about its future development!

Now in the middle of growing season it looks messy, because we are wiring phillyreas in winter.
Difference between olive and phillyrea can be easily spotted, for people who has experience with this species.

Great development over three years!
By the way, my wife and I enjoyed our brief visit to Split in May 2010! cheers

I second Bob - an incredible, interesting lower trunk. I have one like it, minus the incredibly interesting lower trunk Smile
