Beautiful colours and bonsai.
Here the autumn colours are coming too, and even some very early night freezing at a few occasions. Milder weather coming the next period though. Back to normal.

Here some miscellaneous pics of bonsai, accents and garden details, including hoar frost from the last week. More colours will appear the next weeks.

Regards

Hi Will
Love the hornbeam. I am interested in the bark and what species of hornbeam it is. I notice it is not the smooth bark usually associated with hornbeam. This is similar to a variety that I get here from a Bonsai nursery in Australia that he calls American hornbeam or carpinus carolina. Some have suggested it is Hop hornbeam because of the rough bark but I am sure this is not the case.
What I have found is some species such as the American hornbeam are easily hybridized. I also found that carpinus cordata has bark that is very similar and not typically smooth like other hornbeams. So my best guess so far is that it is a hybridized Carpinus carolina with cordata.
Another feature of the trees from this Australian Bonsai Nursery is that out of the 6 seedlings that the nursery man was able to germinate only one shows the amazing autumn colour that is not difused through the leaf but changes distinctly separated by the veins of the leaf. As described here by Brent Waltson
http://www.evergreengardenworks.com/carpinus.htm
Under Carpinus coreana.
I have also found that along with rough bark cordata is also known to some times show this feature in it's Autumn colour.
After years of growing this tree I have never saved the leaves from leaf burn enough to return the tree to it's amazing Autumn colour that it had when I bought it so all I have is an old fuzzy pic to show what I mean.

This is the same tree in Summer showing the pallet-ed bark. No show stopper but I like it Very Happy I hope I have everything right to get the Autumn colour back this season Basketball

Here is another American hornbeam showing some decent Autumn colour although many leaves had already dropped being damaged by leaf burn. This is obviously a cutting from one of the seedlings that does not have the autumn colour separated by the veins of the leaf but is the more common diffused autumn colour. Still pretty nice and I can't wait till I get things right and get a good display. Agian notice the uncharacteristic pallet-ed bark! For some reason these trees remind me of my long gone, Great Nana's garden Very Happy

I have koreana and turczaninovii that I grew from seed that came from Misho Bonsai and so far they also seem to have pallet-ed bark. Although they are very young and maybe it is deceiving but I have also wondered if the rough bark could be an environmental variation in the seed germination Question

That Nick Lenz creation reminds me of the War of the Worlds.


Anyway, we don't get much fall leaf color in my neck of the woods, but some trees make colorful berries. A shohin Pyracantha in a Sara Rayner pot.

Hello Brett. My Hornbeam is Korean. I didn't realise there was a difference between Turczaninovii and Coreana. How do you tell them apart?

Thanks Will
I am definatly no expert on differentiating carpinus species but I have noticed a couple of things when trying to identify mine over the years. It seems that Turczaninovii and Coreana have both been given the common name of Korean hornbeam. But the Turczaninovii (which i think has also picked up the common name of rock hornbeam?) has distinctly more redness to the new growth. The one that my local nurseryman calls Turczaninovii is almost a bronze red colour until the leaves mature.
Misho bonsai seeds and Brent Waltsons species guide say similar things I believe.
I was finally able to germinate carpinus orientalis this season from two different sources. One of the sources was from curiously different looking seeds than normal hornbeam. They where about 3 times the size of normal hornbeam seeds and had ribs down the length like a sunflower seed yet still looks similar to hornbeam seeds and the weeks old seedlings definatly look like hornbeam seedlings. The others are from one of the Croatian guys Wife collecting those amazing mountain specimens. If I could remember which one I would send a big thank you (Two germinated Yay sunny ) so hopefully they read this Very Happy Apparently the orientalis will handle our hot climate a little better Basketball
Might have to start a thread on what species of hornbeam we are all growing but better get out of this thread for now cyclops

'Graveyard Fields' tray landscape planting (Red Maple, Japanese Hornbeam, Withe-rod, Dryland Blueberry)


AJ, this pic of the mixed forest is great. It reminds me of one of Kato's more famous pieces where he created a forest planting using several different species including beech, maple and hornbeam. I also like the fact that the trees are displayed against a concrete wall. The contrast is very nice!

Thanks, MACH5. I was fortunate enough to visit with Mr. Kato a long time ago when I went to Japan. Mr. Nakamura brought me there, and for that reason only Mr. Kato took me to a private courtyard out in back of his nursery, and there I saw some amazing group plantings. The main thing I remember was that the plantings were mostly very large. Mr. Kato was not a tall person, so some of his group plantings featured trees as large as he was. Another impression I had there was that his work was not what many people would call "traditional". The mixed species planting you cite is an example of that.

The 'Graveyard Fields' planting was made in a demonstration at the 1999 Carolina Bonsai Expo. It represents an actual place in western NC that is found along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and is a very popular spot for visitors. I don't recall thinking of Mr. Kato's work when designing this piece. However, something I saw at Mr. Kato's nursery did influence this tray landscape (as it appears now in its autumn coloration):



This piece is titled 'Appalachian Cove', and features 5 different species native to the Southern Appalachian region: American Hornbeam, Red Maple, Shrubby St. John's-wort, Virginia Spirea and Carolina Rhododendron. It's a large piece, over 4' long, and it's planted in a wooden container. The wooden container was modeled after one I saw used for a similar purpose at Mr. Kato's nursery.
