Hi folks! I figured y’all might be interested in a running log of my work with a collected sweet plum (Sageretia theezans). I’m always open to design and work suggestions, so if you’ve got thoughts, please let me know!
The folks at Underhill Bonsai in Folsom, LA dug this for me about a month ago. It was a replacement for a pomegranate yamadori I’d been angling but hadn’t got ahold of. I love elegant flowering/fruiting deciduous and weird, otherworldly anything, so this was a perfect piece of material for me!
Check out those legs!
I agreed to buy based on photos (i.e. I hadn’t seen the thing until pickup). I knew what it looked like; I did not know how large it was.
(In absence of the traditional soda can, please accept this smallish bonsai artist head for scale.)
I have no idea what I’m going to do with this tree. Right now, I’m happy to let it recover from the dig.
