Bonsai Tonight

A final walk through Imai’s garden

Posted in Excursions by Jonas Dupuich on May 30, 2014

Imai’s deciduous bonsai are as interesting as his conifers and include a large number of varieties. Most common among these are small chojubai – the current utility bonsai, or so it seems, among small specimens. Outside, however, were some of the larger trees.

Why are chojubai so popular these days? It doesn’t hurt they have small leaves and ramify well, if slowly. They are also easy to display with medium sized conifers like pines or junipers. Plus they have great flowers.

    Looks more like a youngish Umemodoki than a Hornbeam to me Jonas. Great post, as always.
