    Hydrangea petiolaris -Climbing Hydrangea Bonsai

    Hydrangea petiolaris -Climbing Hydrangea Bonsai can make really great Bonsai if you find a nice trunked one. I have seen a small in a Bonsai nursery that was really great. I found a large one at another nursery. I have had this one for years. It is now just starting to look like a tree. The tree...

    Nice tree and I like it a lot. I just love Barberries and find it hard to pass up a nice one. I am trying to collect different Barberries just to see how many ones I can find with a nice trunk on them. I just potted up 6 Barberries in the last week or so. Now is the time to go Barberry hunting...

    Forestiera neomexicana – New Mexico Privet Flowers

    I thought I would show some of you flowers on a Forestiera neomexicana - New Mexico Privet Bonsai in case you have never seem them. They tend to bloom real early in the season and are really small and you might not see them.

    Hydrangea petiolaris cordifolia

    'petiolaris cordifolia' seems to be a dwarf? I think? Mine appears to be a standard vine and the leaves can be pretty good size for a Bonsai. Yes my tree does bloom. It was potted last year in the Bonsai pot and sulked for a while. This year it only has 1 flower bud on it, I expect it to have...

    Hydrangea petiolaris cordifolia

    I have a Climbing Hydrangea to. I have had it a number of years, I like the bark on it and the little finger projections it uses to cling to things if it was allowed to. You can read about it here: Climbing Hydrangea

    I really really want a redbud!

    Try cutting the tap root on any nursery stock tree and put it back in its nursery pot for a couple more years. Let it develop more lateral roots before trying to get it into a Bonsai pot. I wonder if you could do that on a volunteer tree, might not hurt to try just cutting the tap root only if...

Ace Of Hearts I have another Redbud on my site in more of an artistic style, it has huge leaves which I think look really great...

    5yr Native Tree Challenge - Dingus's rhus aromatica (Fragrant Sumac)

    I had a squirrel come in the 2nd floor window just as I got there! I don't know who was more surprised. The squirrel ran across the window sill knocking stuff off and climbed up the curtain, then across the curtain but not before going number two and then down the other side of the curtain and...

    5yr Native Tree Challenge - Dingus's rhus aromatica (Fragrant Sumac)

    I know you did not mean any disrespect. How do you keep the creatures off you trees in Kansas City? My mother lived in St. Joe and she had nightly visitors all the time. She had a possum living on the side of her house and eating the dogs food. Smart possum and those two dogs did not even know...

    5yr Native Tree Challenge - Dingus's rhus aromatica (Fragrant Sumac)

    That pot is really a high quality pots with multiple discrete color changes in it. Your opinion on the pot is really what Bonsai is all about, some like a tree/pot the way it is and others not so much. I suspect you would change your mind if you saw the tree/person in person. Good luck!

    5yr Native Tree Challenge - Dingus's rhus aromatica (Fragrant Sumac)

    In my opinion there is no need for leaf reduction on your "grow low" they are already small, or should be. My trees are Rhus trilobata‘Autumn Amber’ Three Leaf Sumac which is very similar to yours. My second tree was an attempt to recreate my first tree which died. It is much a better tree then...

    5yr Native Tree Challenge - Dingus's rhus aromatica (Fragrant Sumac)

    I see you found my sumac on my website and it inspires you. I think if I were you I would feed it a lot of plant tone right in its nursery pot and let it grow any where it wants for several years to thicken up the trunk and branches. They grow pretty fast in nursery pots by the way. I would look...

    Bud Break 2021

    Supposed to be anywhere from 5 to -8 the next few nights. I defoliated my large buttonwood in the plant room and it is now sending out new leaves and buds all over. Should look nice before spring arrives. Does not go outside until overnight temps reach 50 here which could be a while.

    Grape Vine #1

    I wanted to mention that my grapevine leaves are substantially smaller then when I got it. Right now I have a lot of leaves on the tree and the leaves are about 1/3 the size of the leaves when I got it. I have a Quercus ilex that did the same thing, leaves about the size of your thumbnail now.
