California Juniper, Sumo Style

Post  mike page on Wed Oct 05, 2011 11:18 pm

Cal Juniper about 15 inches tall from pot rim.
Repotted today and did a litle wiring. By next summer it should look fairly decent.

Wow! That's a spooky tree! There's a fantasy creature lurking in that pot.



Can we see the tree again next summer when you think it's developed as you want please?

Mike - as the person that coined the phrase "sumo style" you should know what it is but help enlighten me, I thought the sumo style had to have a real low aspect ratio (width to height ratio.) The tall part of the trunk would seem to obviate that.

I have a few trees like this and I refer to tham as the Hurst Shifter style - seriously.

Rob, you're right. But, some sumo wrestlers have small heads. tongue

But big appetites! Laughing

I think we should coin a new style the Hurst Shifter.

Call it what you will, I think it's a cool little tree. It's hard to find Small Junipers with that kind of character.
