Mugo pine nr. 35

This is a very nice small mugo pine. I have collected this tree in 1994 in Austria. It was a rather long cascade until 2004. Then I decided to make deadwood of the longest branch. It was then potted into the container by Axel Brockmann. Then it did not do well for a few years. Btu in July of 2008 it looked just fine, ready for a final styling. The foliage is very small at this point in time. It might well grow longer again in the future.

i don´t know...i liked the original design very much. i know you like compact trees but nevertheless. probably the feel of it is better in real view.
btw, did you see the nice stereographic images of your trees in the munich exhibition in the bff ? its a great technique to bring out the 3-dimensional aspects of designs . perhaps you could try it, too with a few of your trees ?

greetings, achim
