The fun mix of trees on display at Yamato Bonsai Kai’s recent exhibit included a winterberry with plenty of fruit. Depending on the weather, winterberry can be shown with fruit as late as February.
One of my favorite trees on display was a ginkgo with a touch of fall color. Ginkgo is a fun variety with which I have yet to work very much. I’m looking forward to starting a gingko project when I can find the right specimen.
Corkbark black pine
Cedar of Lebanon
My favorite part of fall shows is easily the color that fruiting bonsai add. Pyracantha, crabapple, pomegranate and apple are a great way to add color to an exhibit. I’m hoping that more fall shows will become popular so I can see more fruiting trees in exhibits.
