This dynamic and wild looking Shimpaku juniper, aka Sargent’s juniper (Juniperus chinensis var. Sargentii), with its barely visible living vein (or veins?), was donated to the U.S. National Bonsai & Penjing Museum (Japanese Collection) by Kenichi Oguchi in 1976. It has been in training since 1905. The Museum’s logo (below) was inspired by this tree Today we’ve got two special events from the U.S. National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, sandwiched between a couple Junipers from the Museum’s Japanese Collection. Stay posted for more events and more magnificent trees from the Museum’s new website   PHOTOGRAPHING BONSAI WITH STEPHEN VOSS Feb 9, 2019 – DRAWING BONSAI WITH ARTIST TINA THIEME BROWN May 18, 2019 – This Shimpaku juniper was donated by Doug Paul in 2015. Age and years in training unknown. To my eye, a couple things make this tree unique; the two almost equal in girth trunks (in most twin trunk trees, one trunk is clearly stronger), and the ground cover like foliage on the right that appears to be growing from a third smaller horizontal trunk   The Museum logo   20% off Green T Turntables Ends Tomorrow Night STONE LANTERN SPECIALS 20% OFF TURNTABLES 25% OFF OKATSUNE TOOLS 100 GRAM AESTHETICS WIRE SPECIAL 40% OFF 10 – 24 ROLLS 50% OFF 25 OR MORE wire special ends Tues, Feb 5th at 11:59pm EST  DISCOUNTS ARE APPLIED AT CHECKOUT STONELANTERN.COM
