Chinese Juniper #2

Chinese juniper, shimpaku, Juniperus chinensis, probably collected material which came as raw material from Japan. I had it for a few years. Now it is at it's height. And now is the time to part. It left my garden today. We had a good time together. I wish you good luck.

Hi Walter. I am contemplating selling my business here in South Africa and come and work in your garden. All I want is a few slices of bread and water every day. Your trees are absolutely amazing and I appreciate your philosophy about the natural art of bonsai. Regards, Walter.

Hi Walter,
Just wondering what made you lean towards bringing the branches lower. I really like it when you show the progression of the tree over time. How many years from the first photo to the last?

First image spring of 2008.
The lower branches make the tree look much better. What unfortuately is not visible on the imges is the depth of the crown. In reality it looks great, definitely much better than the old small round crown. Only that was not so dense and it looks fine on a photograph. I don't make my trees to look good on photographs, but to look good when you have them in front of you. There is a big difference.
