Has anyone ever seen or actually created a bonsai from sourwood (Oxydendron) stock. I've got them growing all over my property. This is a stump I threw into a pot on a lark last spring because I couldn't kill it during the 2 previous years while clearing the slope behind my house. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the leaves don't reduce and internodes remain long. With that in mind, I may try chopping some larger specimens and developing the trunk/taper before collection. It might be interesting....
