Old Wise One

Post  hiram on Thu Jul 21, 2011 1:17 am



Here is one of my Campeches ( Haematoxylon campechianum ). This tree is estimated to be over 100 years old. This what some of my Yamadori collector friend told me. Very harsh conditions. I just restyled it and it is growing in Yamaaki pot. Enjoy and I will keep posting its progression. Very Happy

Hiarm
That's a cool tree. What stories it could tell. I love buttonwoods they come from the same climate zones don't they?

I think when the foliage fills in it will help balance the composition

It great to see a campeche that is not a formal upright but knowing the compound leaf and growth habit of it, it will take a lot of work to maintain the style. What the heck that's what bonsai is about. Like Mr. Miyagi said - "wire on -wire off."

This is what it used to look like. But I am always looking for the WOW FACTOR, so I decided to go this rout. Rob I know what you mean about informals. I have a few that I am working on, one is a cascade and one is slant with a whole bunch of deadwood. My best friend is working on a 5 trunk. As soon as he designs it I will post it for your enjoyment. These trees are getting very hard to find especially good ones, with movement, and deadwood. I went in May and I was lucky to be able to collect four. One of them is going to be awesome. Guy Guidry is going to be doing a Yamadori Campeche workshop this coming October 15, 2011 for the Bonsai Society of Miami. I will be receiving the trees within a few weeks. : Laughing
