Bonsai in Korea

Post  Budi Sulistyo on Thu Apr 30, 2009 5:43 pm

Recently I was invited to attend International Flower show in Goyang City, Korea. Bonsai was also exhibited. We also had a chance to see around to some nurseries and bonsai collectors. Unfortunately not all trees were allowed to be pictured.
Here are some of what I have seen.

Hi Budi.... great to hear from you, thanks for showing these. I too love Taxus, a great species for bonsai and so often underused, thank goodness I have quite a few Rolling Eyes

Thanks for sharing Budi these great photos of Korean bonsai.
When I lived in Korea 27 years ago I first witnessed bonsai trees. Their trees have been Internet quiet.
Many people don't realize that quite a few Japanese bonsai trees have Korean origin.

Tony,
Taxus is really a very good species for bonsai. You are lucky having some in your garden. One of my daughters is still in London, I hope some day I can visit you.

Hi Rob,
So once you have lived in Korea. You are right that Korea is rich with materials. I am not surprised that some Japanese bonsai were previously from Korea The Taiwanese friends bought over ten Pines' material during this trip.

Hi Budi
I was in Korea in 1954 as a member of the US Air Force, and things were somewhat grim back in those days. It's gratifying to see how well the Koreans have done over the years, and your pictures are an excellent illustration of that.

Best Regards

Mike

Thanks for the photos.
I was selling power carving tools at the 3rd WBC in Seoul in '97 and saw many wonderful huge yew bonsai.
Here is a shot I took of the translator ( Innah) I hired to help me at my vending booth. She is standing next to a fabulous yew that was the first tree you came to as you entered the exhibit room.
Innah spoke wonderful english. She learned english in high school in Canada when her family moved there for four years when he worked for Hyundai.
Regards, Dale



Also, here is a Korean Hornbeam that sat outside the building. The pot was about 8 feet long! A true eight-man tree! Very Happy
