This one has been one of my favorite trees, but it’s rather unassuming in the bench. I initially styled it with Peter Warren in 2011…a flash through the last 8 years in a few snaps…
2010, as purchased from Evergreen Gardenworks:
2011, first major styling:
2012, a slight change in direction:
2014, 2nd major styling:
2015, full year of growth:
2016, lightly trimmed, but otherwise allowed to grow:
2017, repotted, lightly trimmed in the summer, 2014 wires removed:
Which brings us to now…Here is a shot from spring 2018.

Continuing to the “H Shot”
Some moss, cleaning up the undersides of the branches, and a little minor tweaking and it is ready for show.
One last parting shot…
