honeysuckle loking good

Wild honeysuckle, Lonicera xylostemum. This has come a long way from March 2004. This is an absolutely underestimated species. You hardly eve see one as bonsai. But as the pictures show one can develop a good bonsai in five years, just like they do with tropical material.

Not to mention the tree has beautiful summer flowers, is considered an invasive species in many parts, and can survive collection with almost no roots at all. The guys at Norwegian bonsai blog have some beautiful examples.
