    The Literati/Bunjin Thread

    @MACH5 started a maple literati thread and many of us, myself included, didn’t notice that it was a maple only thread! Thought I’d start a Literati thread for all tree types. Once again, let’s keep it similar to “the tree thread” or “ the shohin tree thread”. IF YOU COMMENT YOU'VE GOT TO...

    Flowering plum styling

    I have several plum trees that I’ve collected and this is one that I collected last March.It has interesting shari.

    Literati Tosho

    I bought this needle juniper (Juniperus rigida) from Owen last December; as my annual "big tree buy". It was collected in Japan years ago and imported to the US at some point.

    Shohin Literati Juniper Chinensis

    I started out with three very, very similar junipers in one container hanging down in three different directions. They all basically looked like this about 2-3 three years ago.
