End of March 2008 we have the third Shun Ten near Munich, Germany, The Shun Ten is one of the Grand Slam Conventions in Europe. This time thos who have been invited are supposed to bring one tree only of medium size. I decided that it should be this Europen beech, Fagus sylvatica, 53 cm high, around 50 years old, collected in Germany in 1993. Today I planted it in this fine pot by Milan Klika. This is the only chance to show the beech at it's height, which is clearly without foliage, before the buds have opened.
