Stewartia end-of-year update

Nebari Bonsai

This Stewartia has come along quite well in the 3 years since I dug it up. Below is a shot at near-peak fall color.

A few days later, after a couple freezes, only a few leaves remain…

…which were removed to reveal the branching structure I’d been eager to see for quite a while. It did not disappoint!

After light pruning; just the long shoots and too-strong shoots.

A comparison shot from 3/2020 and 11/2021.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. Thanks for reading along this year. I’ll be back in 2022 with new posts on old trees and pots. Until then, I hope you enjoy the holidays with family and friends.
