Fall color o. My shohin spirea
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:27 AM »
Here is the fall color on my spirea. Best it has ever been. This tree is about 8 inches tall and has good color in spring, summer, and winter.

That's just a great tree, even without the fall color...but even more stunning with the foliage so brilliant!

What Dave M said! Spirea with a trunk!

Very nice.

I'm always on the lookout at nurseries for spirea with any kind of trunk, but still haven't found one. Picked up a couple a year or two ago and planted them in the garden. Maybe someday I'll be able to harvest them for bonsai!

Thanks for your comments. I have only seen a handful of spirea with a big trunk.  Strangely, the trunk has gotten fatter in the pot.
