Shohin Barberry

(1/2) > >>

davestree:
Here is a shohin barberry, about 9 inches tall, variety 'Bagatelle'.  I like the corky trunk and the movement on this tree.  It took a couple of years to bring it down to this size, but all that is left is growing out the branches.

MatsuBonsai:
Looks great.  I've seen more barberry online recently, but I've never come across one in person.  I guess I'll have to keep an eye out.

At a recent Carolina Bonsai Expo at the NC Arboretum ('08) there was a breathtaking shohin (90% sure it was a) barberry.  The color was a tad over-saturated in this camera, but that' a testament to the coloration of the tree.  It was brilliant red.  (Nikon cameras sometimes have a hard time w/ Reds.)

Since that show, I've had my eye out for a good barberry.  I haven't found one, but am still looking.

Dave, give us an overview on barberry care, ...in case I happen across one soon.

davestree:
That looks to be a burning bush, maybe ?  I don't think it is a barberry.

bwaynef:
That makes sense.  Excuse my previous response!









(DOH!!)
