    Repotted Kishu in 1 Part Akadama, 1 Part Kanuma, 1 Part Lava

    Old Kishu

    Here's an old Kishu shimpaku. It was imported over 30 years ago. I purchased it from Suthin earlier this year. It's a great old tree with some nice movement and lots of deadwood. Here's the tree on Suthin's bench. It's a beautiful tree, but had not been styled by Suthin in many years...
