Elsewhere some BNutters are looking for new word to describe American plants in pots. It seems that we do already: most people I talk with say bon - zai as opposed to boh - n - sa - i as Japanese do.

Here's an endemic American azalea, a swamp azalea (Rhododendron viscosum). Soon it will drop all its leaves, then new ones will emerge next spring when it will be covered with white flowers. Great plant for 'bon-zai', IMHO.

Young Tridents showing fall colour, Vancouver Island. Ginko also thinks fall is here. View attachment 211840 View attachment 211842
here is one of my JBP, showing nice response to decandling this spring. Time to perform fall needle reduction, clean up, selective IMG_1177.JPG cut back and wire for spring. In preparation for the next decandling!
