Corylopsis spicata: An old Hazel winter

bonsai general - 102 views



I feel a little guilty for not showing more of the deciduous trees that I am working, as they constitute about 45% of my collection. It is a sad predetermined that blogging mainly on junipers and other conifers, but the reason is that conifers can sometimes be designed in a day, while the deciduous I have are very young, or poorly balanced and very old of which need 10 or 15 years of work. This winter Hazel is one of the oldest trees poorly balanced.

Winter Hazel came into my yard last year, and is the oldest I’ve seen around here. In fact I have never seen oldest in Japan. None had Matt reel when he visited my yard a few weeks ago. Tree problems were evident. The larger trunks were outside the base, and there was no central trunk. The central trunk was dead, but, curiously, a shooting had taken place in the center of the old rotten hole. That is now shooting about 8 years old, but will have another 15 before it becomes the dominant trunk. A lot of foliage balance sheets cutting by half every year, and restrict some areas and leaving other areas buds run wild, is ahead in the redrafting of this. This photo is just after flowering, and young leaves and buds are starting to grow.

The progression of my study is evident in this picture … and mudding recording is done, then paint …

The base. It looks more impressive in person. Bad picture!

New main trunk and secondary trunk, which grows out of the old rotten hole.
