Ivy, with fruit

Postby Watto » June 12th, 2018, 4:41 pm

I think I have shown this Ivy before but today it is here just to show off its fruit. It was a good year for Ivy fruit and that followed on from a good flowering earlier in the season.
I dug this Ivy about 25 years ago give or take a few and although this species is an unusual for bonsai, I think it is quite underrated.

I must say I like thew old front better. Glimpsing the gnarly lower branches and the upper parts seeming to stretch up provide much more interest and make it more unique. Not meaning any offence, as I think you've done a wonderful job with this tree, but :imo: the new front looks a bit boring in comparison.

Wonderful Job. I also prefer the old front but either way is the best for an ivy, in a pot and not up my garden trees

Thanks for your comments.
The "old" front" was OK in my opinion but reminded me of a little boy peeing so I turned it around. It is a good tree if it has more viewing sides I have been told so that is a positive. If I get sick of the current side I can always revert.
I have attached a standard sizing object to show the trunk size.
Cheers

I can often see stuff in trunks/trees when I look at them but that particular graphic had eluded me until you pointed it out... thanks for sharing! :lol:

Can’t say Ive seen too many ivy as bonsai quite as developed as this, the Sapporo really helps to give it scale, I was thinking it was a bit smaller than that. Cool tree Watto.

Thanks mate, I should have also said I did cut all those fruit off the plant after I took the photos for the safety of the local environment.
