European hawthorn #6

European hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna, collected in Germany in 2006. Thi is how I got the tree in spring of 2008.

After I had placed the tree into this container I left the hawthorn alone for a year. Now is the time for really serious styling. It is tough to wire an old hawthorn. They are militant, look at my hand.
