This Siberian Elm was collected in 2012 as a ground layer. The first shots are from the second spring after collection. These elms are prone to die-back, and as such this one lost two major branches.
Here it is a year later after letting it grow and carving out the deadwood.
In the intervening years I have done only some branch selection and no wiring. I submitted it to Forum Q+A 21. The front should be between the next two pics.
After listening to Ryan’s advice and applying some wire I’ve created the tree you see below. The position will be adjusted at the next repot, probably 2 years. It will be time for a real container by then. Any comments/criticism or container ideas welcome.
