I attended the All British Bonsai show last week in Bristol and among some of the amazing trees there, I was particularly impressed by this lonicrea.
This species is commonly used around hear in hedges, and along with privet, is as common as muck.
What really took my breath was the level of detail and refinement shown to this lowly species. Each branch has been set with care and for-thought.
I find it amusing that we go in search of the exotic and then try to grow trees that don’t want to live where we do, when we have trees in our gardens that we ignore.
I don’t remember the artist name.
