Shimpaku Leaves

Post  Yobobs on Fri Oct 07, 2011 8:15 am

Can anyone give me or post some clear view of shimpaku leaves. I'd like to buy one but i'm a little scared of buying the wrong material. I don't know the difference between cypresses and junipers. Thank you for posting

This is the closest I could find.

The foliage of cypress is much coarser. But how do you know Shimpaku will grow in the Philippines?

Hi Yobobs.

The simple anwer to the question from most of us would be to be very wary of buying anything that doesn't have a label on it, or which isn't being sold by someone you know as a reputable and knowledgeable seller. (Those are not absolute guarantees of course.) However, I am inferring from your other posts that you are not a beginner in bonsai and that you have some knowledge at least of your native trees. This makes yours an interesting question in a way, and I'm wondering if it is the case that you have seen one you are interested in but think it is wrongly labelled. Might be a milliion miles off with that of course. I usually fall back on good old books when I need to identify.
