Brilliant Bonsai Colors by Haruyosi

haru9You don't see that many bright yellow pots. The glaze is expensive and hard to come by and the brilliance of the color can be overwhelming. But in this case the little tree holds its own. In fact, it's hard to imagine a better choice of pots to set off the the richly hued Trident maple leaves.

Yesterday one of the trees we featured was by Haruyosi, which reminded me how much I like his seemingly endless collection of Shohin bonsai. This post originally appeared November 2014. It’s one of my all time favorites

I think you could spend a lifetime browsing bonsai images and never find another bonsai artist that has a more sophisticated grasp of color combinations than Haruyosi. Not to offend other great bonsai artists, but just saying that the pot-tree choices that Haruyosi consistently comes up with are brilliant (in at least two senses of the word).

Here's another Trident with some fall color. In this case, with more green and less brilliant red foliage (than the tree above), the more subdued yellowish pot works perfectly.

By the way…. Haruyosi makes his own pots. It’s one thing to be a highly talented bonsai artist and another thing to be a highly talented potter. And yet another thing to be both.

Another undeniably yellow pot. In this case, I think it's the bright yellow-green moss along with the rich green, yellow-gold and reddish-rust hues of leaves (Pyracantha leaves) that allows for such a strong pot.

This tiny pot and tiny tree present a more subtle combination of colors. The three little berries along with the look of the leaves, leave no doubt that this is another Pyracantha.

Another daring choice. The luminous red/pink leaves, set off by the purple pot with strong red undertones, work its magic to perfection. The tree is an aptly named Burning bush euonymus (Euonymus alatus form ciliatodentatus).

A little change of pace. There's a lot that could be said about this unique planting but I've said enough (accept that the tree is a wild rose). You can draw your own conclusions.
