Just sharing a few...

Post  chappy56 on Wed Sep 22, 2010 1:41 am

The first ones are Caryopteris or "Bluebeard bush", excellent bark, and grow fairly quickly. i usually let them blossom and then cut them back. Then there's a ficus, a Japanese Holly, and a Seiju elm.

Hello Chappy. I like the first one with the pale blue flowers. Very nice. Very Happy Good enough for the main forum rather than here.

Thank-you gentlemen.
Will, I didn't know it mattered which forum we posted in. Is the main forum reserved for a different class of trees?

Moyogi, I have three of these that a good friend gave me.
Here are the other two.
Interested?

Sorry Chappy, my reply was a bit misleading. All bonsai should be posted on the bonsai forum. Posted anywhere else and theres a good chance they wont be seen by all. This section is for any topic that you want to discuss and not neccessarily bonsai related. Nice Elms by the way. Ihave one of these and find it incredibly brittle. You just have to think about wiring it and it snaps. Evil or Very Mad

Agreed about the Elms being brittle. I either wire them down to the container or a lower branch like you see in the photos or get them shaped when they are very young.
