Winged Elm - Year Two
« on: April 22, 2011, 06:45 PM »
I collected this winged elm in winter 2010.  I set the branches last year, and this year am working on refinement.  I transplanted to a larger growing container today.  The nebari will need work, but I should be able to get this done in three to five years.

The trunk is a beauty!  Is the first branch on the left lagging behind the others or just younger?  I think that'll be a very important branch and it's in a good spot.

Because it's in the back it appears to be lagging/younger.  I do have to restrain the apical branches, but all of them were grown last year.  But you're right, that first branch is very important to the balance of the design. 

Thank you for the kind words.
