Here are a few more trees from the exhibition on 14 & 15 March 2015 that was held at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra.
This “sticky wattle” is about 14 years old and been in bonsai training for about nine years. The artist reports that it flowers every year so that is a real bonus as the pale yellow flowers are quite stunning.
Purchased from a Canberra nursery many years ago this bonsai is in the early years of its development. Commonly called “black sallee” it has only been in this pot for a few months.
This “forest oak” has year round deep burgundy coloured foliage which is a feature of this bonsai.
This lovely small bonsai rewards with a display of magnificent red flowers in spring and summer.
This is a collected tree (yamadori) from the Wagga region of NSW and is about 17 years old. It has recently been styled in its natural style of weeping branches and it has as its feature the bluish foliage often seen in the wild.
