Oriental hornbeam #45

This species was almost not known about seven years ago. By now around the world the great oriental hornbeams from Croatia have become famous. They come from a Mediterranean climate but are hardy in Central Europe with normal winter protection. They like to be a bonsai. This is a great additon to the species we can use for good bonsai.
This particular one is, of course, in the Fairiy Tale Bonsai Style again. It is still more or less raw material, but with great potential. In spring the tree will be wired for the first time.
