Yamadori – collected in Spring 2018 – Part III

In order to continue presenting the newly collected material in Spring 2018, I will add new photos of several species of trees that I found suitable for bonsai and I found them with quite nice potential. Some of them have already a nice structure, others are only trunk lines that will developed to canopy in the following years. Because I considered that I do not have trees that flower or develop fruits, I have collected species that will do, as soon as they will get established in their new environment.

Some Prunus avium or wild cherry tree. I have collected several cherry tree trunks and they all leafed out by now, vigorously and very healthy.

Two Cotoneasters that were full of fruits during summer of 2017.

A Fagus, very nice ramification and trunk movement.

Some Gleditschia triacanthos with old looking bark on the trunk and nice branching.

A wild apple tree that just started pushing buds from old leaves.

A Pyracantha that was kept in a big flower pot and last year was full of fruits. By now the thick branch also pushed buds that are opening.

A Pyrus Pyraster, or wild pear. In fall, its leaves color turns to red right before dropping them. It gives a quite nice color spectacle as a bonsai.

A Linden that was wired into a feminine movement and seems like “she” is doing just perfect.

I have other several trees that were collected just this year but those need a bit more work to start their branching. Future progression based posts will include pictures about those as well.

Hope you find nice my new collection and thanks for the visit.
