Now is the Time to Order Your Green T Basic and Save

Source: Bonsaibark. No bonsai is too big for Green T. Speaking of too big, it's not everyday you see a Japanese (could this be a Trident?) maple with trunk this massive. It belongs to Jean Paul Polmans and a Basic Green T Turntable exactly like this one can can belong to you along with a 10% Read More

Mystery Bonsai

Source: Bonsaibark. Our source for this lovely beast doesn't say a word about the artist or the tree itself, and Image Search proved itself useless again ("Best guess for this image: flowerpot"), so your guess is as good as mine. Getting another late start today* so we’ll make this one short and sweet. Just one magnificent mystery Read More

Near the Top of the Bonsai & Penjing Pantheons

Source: Bonsaibark. This remarkable planting by Kuanghua Hsiao belongs somewhere near the top of the Penjing pantheon. Getting a very late start today, so we’ll take the quick and easy way out and show you this post from January, 2016 (with a little value added today). I think it’s worth another look anyway. Just two Read More

Bill’s Photos from the Zhongguo Feng Penjing Exhibition

Source: Bonsaibark. It's hard to tell how large this tree is, but I'd guess that it's fairly substantial. No matter how large or small, it's a powerful twin trunk juniper with excellent taper, fluid lines and deadwood that's just right (substantial, but not overdone). I borrowed this and the other photos shown here from some shots Bill Valavanis took Read More

More Great Shots from Bonsai San

6 days ago Nebby 0
Source: Bonsaibark. The way the foliage clings to the trunk gives this tree a wild unstyled look. The deadwood and aged bark don't hurt this effect either. I lifted the photo from Harry Harrington's timeline. Here's Harry's caption... "This was one of my personal favourite trees in the Show (one of many), a Pinus mugo/Mugo Read More

Japanese Maple Bonsai Adventure

7 days ago Nebby 0
Source: Bonsaibark. We've been indulging our annual fall color fixation lately, so why one one more... albeit a subtle one? This Japanese maple is from Korean nursery-grown stock. We found it on Walter Pall's Bonsai Adventures blog. You might notice how the two smaller trees lend perspective and exaggerate the effect of the main tree. Read More

Bonsai-San as We Speak…

Source: Bonsaibark. This unusual full cascade Juniper will no doubt put off some of our anti-deadwood folks, but to my eyes, it's a a highly expressive, dynamic tree. Cascade shots are normally taken from a point that shows the tree cascading down one side of the pot, but in this case the pot is hidden by Read More

Another Brilliant Bonsai in Full Fall Foliage & Other Famous Trees

1 week ago Nebby 0
Source: Bonsaibark. Always nice to lead with a little color. This cheerful full fall color Trident maple belonged to Suthin Sukosolvisit when we first showed it way back in 2009. I don't know who the lucky owner is now. Suthin’s luminous little tree above plays well with our ongoing fall foliage theme, while the rest of the Read More
