Thanks Jose Luis, I appreciate you sharing those. Good camellias seem to be few and far between. Those look to be the same as what I'm working on, the one called 'beni kan tsubaki' in Japan and 'shishi gashira' here. Do they ever use any of the bigger leafed japonica varieties?

Russell,

Yes, there are two types of camellias used for bonsai in Taiwan. One is known as Tcha Mei and the other as Kaffei Mei. I will look for some pictures for comparison. Indeed, one has a larger leaf. Flower colors range from white to pink, red and one with several colors. As a matter of fact, there is a guy in Taichung (central Taiwan) that is known as the Camellia King. He sells a lot of product to Japan.

Warm regards,

Jose Luis

Hi Jose,
I loved your pictures of the Taiwan Bonsai Show.
I am intrigued by the Junipers which look like yamadori but are not. How are they started, then trained? Is there any website or book which shows the process to create such a tree? Any guidance would be appreciated.

thanks,
Todd

Todd,

Taiwan does have mountains with natural occurring junipers, but they are not collected. It is illegal. Nonetheless, the high mountain junipers in Hualien County (Yushan San Puo) will not survive the weather at lower latitudes. Inspired by the natural occurring Jin and Shari present in High altitude juniperus Squamata, Taiwanese bonsai artists began to device methods to be able to reproduce flattened Shari ( like this present in natural junipers) on rounded/dull field grown material. Juniper cultivation in Taiwan is quite recent by bonsai standards, more or less forty to fifty years. At first, junipers were carved using rotary tools and flap wheels. Unfortunately, this left unsightly mechanical traces. By experiencing with trial and error, early pioneers used screw drivers as carving burins to peel off wood fibers, bit by bit. In this way, a more natural look was achieved. Sandblasting was another common technique.

Today, junipers are carved by means of burins and chisels; 95% of the work is manual, while only large branches or unsightly portions are removed mechanically. You can visit www.sidiao.com for additional details.

Warm regards,

Jose Luis
