Dammend ... what a beautifull hornbeam ... I guess its not very long in styling, wright ?

Avicena, from that tree all has started! The first oriental hornbeam from Walter's first demo in Croatia in 2007.

It's all that tree's fault!! The rise of bosnai in Southestern Europe is due to exactly this one. Blame it on him.

Stunning as usual!

Any chance tilting the hornbeam to the left a bit at next repot would bring up some root flare on the right to balance the excellent root flare on the left?

Sure Jeremy, the hornbeam will have much better nebari at next repotting. It looks pretty mature to me already for a tree which was growing in the wild still four and a half years ago.

You have certainly proven that the oriental hornbeam is one of THE best bonsai subjects! The speed of their development seems almost unequaled.
