Leptospermum flowering question

6 years 9 months ago #39547 by Rod Lovett
Looking good Pete, I am not sure I would get too formal with the styling of this one. I like it`s weeping habit, I think it suits it more than a traditional layered look.
Cheers Rod.

I really like the last image, for me in the earlier image in 2012, it had a feeling of being contrieved (if that makes sense) whereas now there has a much more natural feel to it. I do like it with an open canopy and not too dense. It will be great to see where you take this Peter and I will be following with interest (in your other thread).

The pot it is in is fantastic too, I am sure I have asked you this question before but who is the potter ? The glaze is brillant.

I am new to this species, I have 3, two that were given to me by Jason (one collected) and the other a recently bought scoparium that is currently in flower. The more I see of them, the more I like them.

Hope you don't mind me posting it, but this is my scoparium flower:



I will have to get some decent photos of them and start up a thread.

Cheers

David

Don't mind at all Dave, the flowers are the same as mine but pink. Nice.

Yes I have seen these ones before Leong. Not to my liking but I am sure some would find them appealing. Thanks for thinking of me though.





Keep in mind this is only a baby in bonsai terms, it was happily growing in the ground as a full size tree 4 years ago.

Tis' the season to be Jolly Shalla la la la la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaa

Hi guys,

Nacho Marin's Callistemon is an interesting and impressive tree, but its not for me. If I had it infront of me to do as I please, I would do many things, as I am sure we all would which is a good thing. However I can and do respect the effort and skill of the artist that has created it, which I am sure we all do, but in our own way.

Peter,

Could you do me a favour and refresh my mind as to who the potter was who made that pot your tree is in ? I love the tree how is coming on, but the pot is magic IMO.

Cheers

David

Sorry for the delay in responding,

Thanks Pete, I remember asking you it before ages ago in this ones original thread on here which you did tell me but I had forgotten. I love the pot and think it is fantastic, the tree I love too and it will just keep on getting better.

Cheers

David

p.s for the record, Nacho Marin's Bottlebrush for me lacks a crown, there is something missing from it. If you look at some of the weeping style trees that were shown in China recently, they for me represent a complete tree. Just an opinion remember.
