This "kishu" Juniper Bonsai was Styled in December, 2022 and photographed January 18th. It's the trees first styling (it's been wired in the past to twist the trunk) and we snagged it to post online.
If this tree does not sell, it's slated to be potted into a ceramic pot this spring. We styled several hundred conifers this winter so they can be repotted next spring. They will all be repotted, and therefore not sold as Styled Pre-Bonsai.
Shimpaku's are one of the most sought after Juniper in Japan for their unique soft cloud like foliage. The trunks also lend themselves to natural shari. This is an incredible tree. It might look a little sparse now (it's dormant and a lot of foliage was removed to style), However, once established with new growth and in a ceramic pot... this is a beauty.
Please Note: We Can NOT Ship Junipers to California.
This Juniper is 3" tall, measured from the soil to the top of tree. The spread is 8"
It ships in a 6" plastic grow pot

The Tree(s) you see are the tree(s) you'll receive.
Wiring is best done in autumn or early winter, so that the branches can become accustomed to their new position while the tree is dormant. Wiring done at other times must be watched carefully for signs of wire cutting into the bark, and must be removed immediately if this happens. If necessary, the tree can be re-wired after removing the old wire.
Repotting is best done in spring. Junipers can also be repotted in autumn if necessary, since they enter a period of renewed root growth at that time. Extensive root pruning in autumn is probably not a good idea, however. Pines and other conifers grow in association with a symbiotic fungus which grows in the root ball of the tree. If this fungus is not present, the tree may die. For this reason, pines and other conifers should never be bare-rooted.
We Can NOT Ship Junipers to California.
