Chinese Fringe Flower

This is not really a bonsai, but it is a very interesting flowering plant. Its real name is Loropetalum chinense and my darling wife saw one as bonsai at an exhibition and thought it was delightful, and thus she bought one and I started working on it a couple of years ago. It might be a bonsai in another five ot ten years, but until then we just enjoy the flowers that come around in spring, and again in autumn.

Technically it belongs to her but when it looks good in flower, I take all the credit.
