The highlight of Garden Michael Hagedorn

bonsai general - 4 views

My recent trip to Portland began with a visit to the garden of Michael Hagedorn. Its trees are looking great this time of year -. Junipers are covered with new growth and bonsai deciduous are full and healthy

junipers in particular caught my attention on this visit, probably because I’ve been enjoying more and more in my own garden. Large specimens collected on display deserve special attention because they have great movement and dead wood. Michael style highlights these features, so that the trees living works of art. Here are some of my favorites.

Some other trees that seemed particularly great when I visited include Ezo spruce, a Japanese maple and chojubai single trunk -. One of my favorites in the states
