    "Old Gold" - Help me please?

    I picked out this Old Gold Juniper at a box store after shamelessly feeling nebari through about 20 nursery pots. I love the trunk movement, and I feel like there are lots of options. I want to take this one really slow and methodical, so all I've done so far is some light cleaning. There is...

    Rocky Mountain Juniper Progression

    I am not sure if I have shared this progression here or not. I bought this Rocky Mountain Juniper in 2018. August 2018 I cleaned it up and took it to a workshop with Naoki Maeoka the same year. We discussed the angle and direction of the future tree. I wired a cut a few things off and wired...

    Juniperus sabina var. Buffalo

    A nursery near me is (sadly) going out of business and they have a ton of Sabinas for a whopping ten bucks for a decent 2 gal. I’ve pretty much limited my collection to Shimpaku and a couple of Procumbrens, so have no experience with them. The foliage looks quite nice, almost as good as my...

    “Grey Owl” juniper

    The species of this cultivar are disputed although it’s listed as Juniperus virginiana from the nursery trade. Some argue there is chinensis in there. One thing I will say is it doesn’t have all the dreaded qualities of a virginiana. I bought this for $10 at a local hardware store a few months...
