Some time ago, Alexi Goranov asked if I’d be interested in a list of trees that have won Kokufu prizes. I was. I was curious what varieties these trees were and interested in flipping through old books to see what the winning trees looked like.
Just this week, I published Alexi’s index so anyone can make use of it.
The index includes show number and year, variety, style and size. It’s based on the books Alexi had access to so if anyone wants to fill in the gaps, feel free to send them my way and I’ll update the index.
What I don’t have at this point is photos for each tree. In the meantime, here’s a beefy Kokufu prize winning juniper exhibited at last year’s event.
