Title: Cornus nuttallii Western Dogwood Bonsai?
Post by: Yenling83 on June 01, 2012, 08:13 PM
Anyone have any pictures of a Western Dogwood Bonsai?  Looks like a very challenging tree to work with.  I just love seeing them in bloom in the Sierras. 

This is the tree i'm talking about:

I have heard that they don't like their roots messed w/ and that this is one of the challenges w/ dogwoods as bonsai.

That's true especially for wild collected trees.  Human grown or young plants should respond better.
