Tatarian honeysuckle #1

Tatarian honeysuckle, Lonicera tatarica, collected in Norway in 2010, first image. This species is quite interesting and very rare as bonsai. It throws hundreds of shoots in early spring. But after wiring most of them die - in my garden at least. Anyway, slowly but gradually the tree starts to look decent. This may be classified as Fairy Tale Stlye.
