My new shimpaku

<< < (2/4) > >>

M. Frary:
  This one isn't bad. Its been kept close at the nursery by cutting it back every so often.

Herman:
Hi M,

Is this the normal variety of shimpaku? the foliage looks a bit loose, was it maybe grown in a shady spot?
love the base on it, nice material to test ones creativity, It's a blank canvas :)

kind regards
Herman

  I think I'm going to drastically change the planting angle. Tip it to the right and cascade or jin the right trunk.

Then I'm not sure I can give much advice.  The strength of this tree to me seems to be it's multi-trunkedness.

  I'm open to all suggestions dude! Multiple sets of eyes and opinions are what I come to forums for. Tipping it up isn't set in stone. Let's hear what you would do. Or anyone else on here for that matter. Let's go!

  Herman, all I know for sure is it is a shimpaku. My first one at that. So I'm not sure how tight the foliage should be. It came from a bonsai nursery 1000 miles away. Don't know.
