I bought this tree about 3 years ago and I kept making it shorter and shorter as I learned more, and have finally achieved an almost shohin. It is about 9" tall and has a 1.5" trunk with a large rotted section. I really love this little guy... It is planted in a very unique pot by North Eagle Pottery. Enjoy!

Thanks guys! Glad you all like it! It is going to be sad when I have to reduce the flowers to two or three per bunch (to redirect nutrients). I want to get a few more branches on it this season to start really working on ramification.

Winter Fruit

Here is the crabapple in its winter glory. I only left 4 apples on it after it had finished flowering, and now in its winter dress it looks a little bare...

They are a blast to work with and it looks really cool with the deadwood areas.
