Found these couple of Texas Sage (Leucophyllum frutescens) at a local nursery here in St. Petersburg. These two are maybe around 1-1/2 trunks with a nice spread... a little crazy roots. They had been hit by the cold snap we had a few weeks ago, so they chopped them down a bit. Any tips on bonsaiing these? Thanks

I have a couple. They are tough to figure out and although I've had them about 10 years or so I have yet to obtain lasting desirable results. I'm at the about to give up point.

I have one and it is real finiky! Hard to do traditional bonsai with ramification etc. Just kind of have to wing it and cut it till you like it or kill it.
