This really isnt much of a progression. More of a "before/after". This ming aralia has been in development for a couple of years now. I wired one of the normaly weeping shoots upward to develop as a leader and to allow light and air to penetrate the canopy. Today I removed the leader and wired many of the already weeping shoots to form a sort of weeping informal broom form. Many of the remaining shoots need to develop some more and I am waiting to wire them. Tell me what you think so far.
