Bougainvillea "Pixie Pink" Cascade

I don't think I've posted this one in here. It's a root cutting taken about 10 or so years ago.

A.G.

  10 or so years ago, someone (you?) Made an excellent decision!
That is a marvelous tree. The trunk/foilage/flowers contrast is beautiful.
The movement of the colorless roots against the perfect pink flowers....

 Like the trunk gave up ALL color and life to the canopy.

I think it deserves a different pot. Something continuing the ruggedness of the trunk.
What do you think?

Excellent image. Thanks for sharing!

I too like the contrast between the foliage and the trunk, ...though rugged isn't exactly how I'd describe it (the trunk).  And, if anything in this composition needs changing, its the stand! :)

Another good one Andy.  You're starting to spoil us so that its not even surprising anymore.

Nice really nice I would change the pot to enhance the tree more, just my option.

Larry,

I donated that one to The Texas State Bonsai Exhibit. It had gotten a little rough and I hope they can take better care of it than I was. Or....auction it off to someone who will.

Can't imagine they would auction that one off. That's a one of a kind, but if they do, maybe I'll see it in Corpus in October, at LSBF.
