RE: #BonsaiNews: Hugely popular bonsai species, Juniper Procumbens, transformed
Really liked it as a cascade, especially in that beautifully contrasting blue pot. Fundamentalists might say the pot is too pretty for the tree. Bah!
However, you have been rapidly redesigning this tree into something new. I think it will take a long while to get it into a presentable form, but I think you can do it.
I have a hard time with this kind of prickly juniper. The tips are always crisping up and yellowing, and it's so sharp I almost never want to prune it. Pinching it is best, but painful! I think I'm doing everything wrong with it. It might be the type of tree that grows better in ground in my climate. They grow practically everywhere in people's yard landscapes with zero maintenance.
