Revisting one Ezo Spruce 2009

Spruce bonsai have been ‘in the news’, last year or two. I posted a fir tree and this fall … and I thought, why not continue the trend? So here’s another. Some of you may remember this trunk group four Ezo spruce from a previous post. It was designed in 2009 and left rather leggy, because you can not always cut where we would like the first time. The recent wiring allowed to take the branches back to about where the profile should be.

fir is a very popular tree for bonsai in Japan. The vigor and tenacity as a potted tree is equaled by few genera, and feel serene, calm that is appreciated above water.

As the tree looked after initial styling and ‘encapsulation’ in 2009. Chunks remained in the cut branches to control bleeding sap.

In September 2011 before rewiring. In 2010 I planted some azalea ‘Kokinsai’ on the back, which is a dwarf azalea.

As is now following rewiring. There is still thin areas, particularly at the corners. Spruce develops rather quickly, however, and I think in about three years, this should be more mature. It’s starting to look ‘quiet’. Halfway! Although we could discuss if there is ever a ‘no’ in bonsai.
