Its been a bit since my last post so I figured I better get on the ball. This is a short post but I do have others being created and will have some more being uploaded in the future 🙂
This Dwarf Burning Bush was purchased as a standard nursery shrub. I have seen some photos of burning bush bonsai and was captivated by them especially when they are in fall color. I figured I would give one a try and see how it goes.
Here it is after bringing it home from my local nursery. Long and shaggy!
I gave it a very needed haircut!
After a strong growing season last summer I cut it back again and placed it in a training pot this spring.
After I re-potted it I decided to cut it back a little bit further.
Shortly after re-potting it is throwing out a bunch of new growth!
And its current state, lots of growth. After this season I will prune it back again, throw some wire on it and start the shaping and styling process for its future as a bonsai.
Thanks for reading!
