bonsai general - 29 views



Dan Robinson has been growing bonsai pine for a long time. Some of the trees on display in the gardens of Elandan started from seeds collected in Korea Dan when he was in the service. Most, however, were obtained from the mountains, including the impressive samples below. All text accompanying the images comes from the signs that appear with trees. I have identified trees without signs simply as “pine” -. Please let me know the details if you are familiar with these trees and I’ll update the post accordingly

Ponderosa PinePinus ponderosaYear of Origin: 1700When I spotted this tree struggling for life in the crack of a granite boulder in Wyoming, I instantly had a plan to create a cascade style bonsai with its swollen base and short compact branches. To complete the design, heavy wiring would be needed to manipulate the branches. Heavy wire holds the branch in the position you determine for the tree's artistic creation.

88. Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa)Year of Origin: 1750I replaced the original Ponderosa Pine foliage by grafting Japanese Black Pine foliage onto it in 1970. The Black Pine foliage has a density, color and length that is very desirable.

Eastern Pitch PinePinus rigidaYear of Origin: 1820Collected in the Adirondak Mountains of New York with a young and enthusiastic Frank Heidt. Pitch pine is a favorite of East Coast collectors and it is easy to understand why. It's amazing that within an hour of New York City gnarly stunted trees can be found.
