There's a new orange out (not the red but a new sport) that grows aggressively as does the "white". I put white in quotes because i've never seen a white chojubai. They are all tinged yellowish. I have to be honest, while i appreciate the oranage and "white", the smaller leafed red is more desirerable. Surprisingly I have seen reds with tiny leaves and others with bigger pretty close to white sized leaves. Bill did a nice job in his magazine with author owen reich. on the topic recently....2014 issue #1. . If you like chojubai, it's worth your while getting this back issue while readily available.

Dick, I agree. My "white" chojubai is kind of creamy/yellow in color.

However, last week at the Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition I saw a PURE white chojubai. It was stunning. Unfortunately the lighting was poor and could only get this photo. It was truly a unique color for chojubai.

wow... not only is that one stunning little tree, it is also very "instructional" to look at and study...

Was out "poking" around at local nurseries and much to my disbelief found a georgeous little quince, that looked every bit the part of chojubai, but leaf shape a bit different. Entitled Fuji, I brought it home just to play with.

Has anybody propagated Chojubai successfully from cuttings? I tried this year but failed (with quite a few cuttings). Any experienced information on propagating Chojubai cuttings would be appreciated.

Hardwood.  Rootone.  Sandy soil.  Moist, NOT wet.  LEAVE THEM ALONE.  No wiggling, pulling or otherwise testing for roots. If no leaves appear next spring, sorry.

I don't have as good of luck as maybe others with the powder of rootone. I prefer the liquid hormone rather than the powder. Soil, I use the finest screened pummice 90% and 10% coconut fibers. A misting tent helps.As Jim suggests definetly wood that has hardened and is not still green.

The White Chojubai in a 2.5" pot that I got earlier this year from Brent Walston is flowering now in October. How cool is that.

A great thread. I love chojus very much too. Having grown them for about 20 years, looking at the Japanese examples at the start of this thread fill me with admiration. Going by my experience, those (the  japanese ones) must be be many decades old. Surley it would take 30 to 40 years to get a one inch trunk diameter from a cutting. ...At least in a pot. The ramification too is a testament to patience.
As for cuttings, I find them easy enough. I start them under mist for about 6 weeks and then put them out in the full sun with the other trees when they begin to callus. This bright light treatment - together with watering every day - seems to be the key. Hormones don't really ssem to be necessary.

Hi Dick, I PM'd you looking for some rooted red Chojubai cuttings to purchase. But I guess I should ask the other IBC folks in the US who have rooted cuttings... please PM me if you do.

Thanks,
Aman
