Description

The Chinese juniper, Juniperus chinensis, is one of the classic Japanese bonsai subjects.

. Very often created to highlight 3 main elements in the design, significant deadwood both in the form of shari on the trunk and jinned branches, prominent live vein displaying the characteristic chestnut red coloured bark and green foliage areas arranged to best give prominence to the other two elements. Of course, personal preference allows you to create a bonsai to your own taste which may or may not incorporate all or just some of the aforementioned features.

This example is a 12 tree group the  trunk diam. vary from 2 cm. down to 0.5 cm.  The bonsai has a top height 46 cm.  and a side to side measurement of 62 cm. It is planted in a good Japanese unglazed oval 45x35x6 cm. This group will have been put together in this country by an enthusiast with trees that were almost certainly grown in the UK
