I have a number of Agonis they are fun to work with.
Any hints would love to hear from you.

G'day Rayfam,

Nice Agonis, it has a very naturalistic shape and pleasing movement. Is it A. flexuosa?
I would like to see the foliage clipped so that the branches take on a more cloud like appearance whilst keeping a slight weep to them. Study old trees in nature, particularly the way branches/foliage are shaped and the way they all form the canopy while still maintaining individuality.
Have you ever defoliated this one? Reducing the leaf size would do wonders for the scale. Also, consider removing one of the lower right hand branches. They look too crowded the way they are growing out together.
Have you ever seen it flower?

Thanks for sharing!
Steven

Looks great.
I just picked a few seedlings up - how big would you grow them on before going for the bonsai pot?
