Yamadori Shohin Crab Apple in Penny Davis Pot

Post by Watto »

This tree was once much larger but this is the version of the smallest tree within the available material. I really like the wild branching it has now. It took a while to get the untamed look but it is my preferred version.
It looks good in flower and in fruit, but I like it best in its naked state.

I love it, Watto. Beautiful little tree. I like the lengthy horizontal branching, it's a bit different, and I can imagine that it would be spectacular with fruit hanging all around it.
Awesome :tu:

I'll certainly post again if it flowers well this year.
This is what it looks like when in fruit but the photo is a few years ago before I took some time to "unstraighten" (that's a new word I just made up) the branches.

I gave this tree some new shoes recently. This wasn't because I didn't like the Penny Davis pot, not at all I think the pot is great, but I thought the tree needed a slightly smaller pot to emphasis the trunk width of the tree.
I hope you like. The photo doesn't truly reflect the colour of the pot which is a deep green.

Looks great Watto. I can't see the green in the pot, but am able to imagine it. Lovely little tree.

Although the new pot doesn't look as pretty as the previous, I agree that the dimensions are much better and it emphasises the trunk width. Cool tree, don't forget to post when it flowers!

I'm a bit excited as this little darling is going to flower this year, not much but I did trim it rather harshly earlier so I wasn't expecting too much colour.
Anyway the buds are forming and when it flowers I will post another photo.
