Don the one you put up with the caption "always have liked this one", and Owen the second one in your group of 3 pictures, those are just stunning!

In the same light of this thread, does anyone have photos of chojubai over rock? I know someone mentioned it but I didn't actually see it posted....

Owen-Some very nice trees, thank you for showing!  I really like when the tree seems to be consuming the rock


Joshua-here's one that was in Kokufu, I took the pic from Michael Haggedorn's blog.

this isn't non-traditional, but since I was repotting it I thought I'd post it.
Stands about 30" tall with 3" trunk on the rock, 10" base and 14" nebari
For sale, by the way.

Here is an Variegated Porcelain Berry - Ampelopsis brevipedunculata "Elegans" that is about 13 years old.  It was started from a root cutting, and was always in a small pot until being placed on the rock about three years ago. Taking a look at it prompted a cut back.

Lost the old pic. Can be viewed here http://bonsaistudygroup.com/general-discussion/example-of-spiritual-philosophy/

Got that root moved!

On the backcountry thread I think we determined this is poplar, or cottonwood?
