The blurred tree is a Twisted trunk pomegranate which won the coveted "kokufu" prize at the Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition in February 2008 (I think). Here is a photo of it last November in full leaf and also a few days ago at the ASPAC convention display in Tamomno Park.

What would be a rough estimate of the age of that Twisted trunk Pomegranate, I couldn't Imagine..
-jay

P.S. I know its rude to ask the age, but owning one myself, I know how brutally slow they grow and am familiar somewhat with the time it takes to attain trunk caliper...so please forgive me.

Other observations:
There was one persimmon at the Taikanten that had 9 large fruit on it. It was interesting that the fruit bearing branches were all straight while the rest of the tree's branches were fairly wiggly. Upon closer examination the straight fruit bearing branches were actually glued into holes drilled in the tree's live branches. What would you call this a "Fruit-uki"?

We witnessed many of the so called rules broken in action for the sake of art - to wit, having an even number of trunks in a clump planting, aerial roots on pine trees, ferns growing off trunks, heavy wire on branches, wire biting in severely, very obvious guy wires, soil not mossed, a back branch as the number one branch, repeating species in a shohin display, displays with 4, 5 , 6 even 8 items etc. So when you hear someone critique a tree or display and say “the Japanese wouldn’t do that” take it for what it’s worth. Art is art.

Hi Rob
Please dont tell me, this was winning entries Neutral .

Many thanks to William

Kind regards Yvonne

I was lucky enough to be visiting Mansei-en when they were preparing to load it on the van to Takamatsu. Lucky too that they let me take pictures!
