Old Gold Juniper

Post  Ryan on Sun Nov 28, 2010 8:52 pm

Here is another one of my ugly trees. This was a cheap Old Gold Juniper that I bought from a local garden center. I didn't think at the time when I bought it, how badly the foliage would be for bonsai. But, I'm learning with every mistake I make, so one day I will be pro. Here is a nice degression of a tree:

First bought:


First styling:


Second styling/where it currently is today:


I guess there is really no where to go with an ugly tree like this, but I just wanted to post it to let all of you see how not to style a juniper Rolling Eyes

Comments/advice always welcome.

And please, try hard not to laugh Laughing

I think I said this somewhere else, Ryan, but I think it will have to become a BIG bonsai before its foliage will look less-than-messy.

Thank you! It may take a few years, but it just might be something one day. I think I will end up planting this into the ground come spring.
