Thanks Paul. It has its issues for sure, but hopefully I can sort them out in time. It adds a nice diversity to the bench even if it doesn't become a show stopper.

Since you've posted, what would you recommend for a pot for a tree like this in the future? Interested to hear your take.

In regards to shape, an oval would be my first choice.  An oval with a bit of curve in the sides to compliment the curved trunk and a slight outward curved rim.

The right color would depend on what time of year you would want to display the tree.  That's the catch with flowering and fruiting bonsai.  An appropriate color to show off the flowers may not be the right color to show off the fruit.

So, in what phase would you be most inclined to show your tree? 

Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend Tom.

Regards,
Paul

Good question about when to display. I think i would try and accent the flowers in early spring. Maybe a cream colored pot? The flowers are a dull yellow if I remember correctly.

  Are either of the trees referred to commonly called Autumn Olive?

 Why yes Mike one is. Which one? Not sure. All caught up in Latin names and flowers and all.
