The swirl of color and freakishly wild and wonderful form, belongs to Dan Robinson. It’s from Will Hiltz brilliant book (Gnarly Branches, Ancient Trees) about Dan and his trees (this one is a Bald cypress, one of the handful a few deciduous conifers on this planet).
It’s that time of year…
This brilliant Boston ivy appears on the cover of Bonsai Today issue 68 and is part of a gorgeous autumn color gallery (Bonsai Today back issues are currently 70% off at Stone Lantern).
A multi-hued Trident maple forest from the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum’s North American Collection.
We’ve shown this glorious golden toned Trident before, but it’s worth another look. It belongs to Walter Pall.
As you can see, this is a Virginia creeper belongs to Harry Harrington. It’s from Harry’s most excellent site: bonsai4me.
Here’s another spectacular tree from Will Hiltz brilliant book (Gnarly Branches, Ancient Trees). It’s a Korean hornbeam.
It’s the nebari more than the fall color that caught my eye with this Red maple (Acer rubrum). Here in Vermont Red maples usually flame a brilliant scarlet to orange, while this one shows much softer tones. Still, it’s a sweet tree with a sad/sweet story (from Crataegus bonsai).
Root-over-rock larch by Larch Master Nick Lenz (Nick’s benchmark collecting book is on sale at Stone Lantern). Larch are another of the small handful of deciduous conifers.
Danish anyone? This brilliant yellow-green Danish cherry is from Morten Albek’s website (Shohin-Bonsai Europe). Morten is the author of Shohin Bonsai: Majesty in Miniature (also currently on sale at Stone Lantern).
