A few small privet

Post  JimLewis on Mon May 02, 2011 2:27 pm

Comments and suggestions welcomed on any one of these. These are all Ligustrum sinensis which is a pesky weed around here and tends to take over roadside landscapes unless sprayed liberally with Roundup.

PLEASE ignore the horrible Chinese bathtub pot -- both the color and the shape. You take training pots where you can find them for the little ones.



A semi cascade (I guess that's what you'd call it).




A root over rock -- a bit larger tree.

Some top work to do yet on the last one.

Hello Jim,

Below are my suggestions for trees 1 and 3 - it's easier (and more fun) than trying to explain what I'd do:




Small changes, IMO.

Cheers

The root over rock privet has existed in one form or another since 2001.

Jeez, Jim. How on Earth did you manage to stop your hand shaking in the third pic? That tree/pot combo must weigh an absolute ton compared to all your others! Laughing

I would not call the one in the red pot a semi-cascade. Definition of semi-cascade is the leader is between the pot rim and the pot bottom. I would call your tree what Mr. Wu called leaning-over-the-water style.

Jim must have a collection of a hundred trees that all fit together on top of a cofee table!
