    My first Escambron - Broom style

    Bought this one from our local bonsai nursery, about an hour away from my place. I chose it for it’s awesome bark already on main trunk, and it’s feature at the base, the bark being split. I like it because it gives it a wild and rugged personality. Lots more to have to work on, such as branch...

    Escambron - totally underutilized native tropical

    Escambron is one of my favorite tropicals. Escambron is what we call it here in Houston as most of our collection locally comes from Puerto Rico - it's called Clerodendrum aculeatum. I'm sure that Anthony has another name for them. Here is mine - two years in training from a stump and...
