Silly Shohin ;-0

Someone gave me a big Brugmansia tree a few years ago and I decided to make something absurd. I airlayered a section of it to make a shohin with a flower bigger than the tree. I have to repot it a few times per year but it flowers profusely in the summer - just have to water it profusely or the buds fall off. Enjoy.

John,

Thanks for posting this tree.

While the flowers may make it silly, it still has a tree shape to it. When people ask me what kind of tree a bonsai is, the discussion always ends up with me saying you can make a bonsai out of anything, some things are just better than others. I don't know who coined that phrase, but I like it.

I will think of this tree, along with Walter Pall's hibiscus, when I say or think the above.

Thanks again,

Martin
