Shohin Cotoneaster.

Post  Guest on Wed Aug 04, 2010 6:46 pm

Had a little play with this cotoneaster today. Took me 2 hours to leaf prune and 15 minutes to wire and place.

Collected two and a half years ago, from a chalk Quarry and cut back hard. This tree is 4", 100mm tall.

Beautiful piece of material, and at 4" tall would make a fabulous mame!

If you hadn't said how big I would have thought it a lot bigger. Very nicely done.

I agree with Smithy. It would be very easy to imagine this tree as any size, which makes what you've achieved already with it all the more amazing. Generally, the smaller cotoneasters you see have thinnish trunks to match their height. This is exceptional though.

Keep us posted.

Super job again Will. Not to down play your ability...but many of your posts should be a great example of why selecting good material is important. But, as usual, you've done a great job.
Love those short fat little trees!

Thankyou all for your comments. As I have said before, you really do have to do the legwork to find good material. Whether its common or private land, or rubber necking peoples gardens. Then being brave enough to go and ask. This tree is very strong and I would hope it to be back in leaf within the month. Will keep you updated.

Nice job Will. I bet it will be back in leaf in less than a month!
What was the spread of the original bush before the chopping back?
Gonna be a cracker.

Hello Nick. The original plant was Not a lot taller than it is now, maybe a few inches (several centimetres Alain). The growth with this species is horizontal and was about 5 feet (1.5 metres) across.

Bought a couple of pots from Stone Monkey today. Thought they might be suitable for the Cotoneaster. This is my favorite for the tree.

WOW WILL !!! That is a very impressive looking shohin you got there !!! I love the placement of your main branches !!! You managed to creat beautiful open spaces that give this very small tree a very BIG sized image !!! That is why it was so hard to tell how big it actually was.
The bright color of the blue pot is stunning and would look lovely against the dark green leaves and red berries !!!
It will be a winner in a few years !!!
Well don Will !!!
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

GREAT Cotoneaster Will. Congratulations. Definitively a blue pot for that tree, because of leaves and berries as Hans says. Very nice branch structure for that size of tree too. Very Happy

Best regards

You have a beautiful little tree:)
I like the brown more, but white flowers and red fruits will look better with a blue pot. Blue makes red more red, and vice versa Wink

Terrific little tree Will, I'm green wil envy!!!
I didn't know that you could leaf prune these trees. I usually struggle wiring them at this time of year. Lesson learned

I think that the first pot is the way to go as I feel that the size/shape & colour will be better suited. Very Happy
Andy has got some lovely glazes for Cotoneasters in his armoury. I've got to get him to make a pot for the one that I posted on here a few months ago but that will probably be for 2012.

Great work again and I'm just imagining what your tree would look like on my benches Twisted Evil
