Bonsai Tree Old Shohin Japanese Juniper (Procumbens Nana) in Vintage Japanese Pot. Trunk Diameter: The trunk Dia. Is approximately 1 inch. Height: Tree height from the soil line to the top of the apex is 8. Canopy: The canopy is well proportioned and measures 12 wide. Nebari (Root Spread):Root spread is visible throughout base and is 4. This old, but small size Juniper is one of the most popular evergreen trees in the United States. When we think of a traditional bonsai and what it should look like, we think of the Karate Kid and the Procumbens Nana juniper. For a tree that is only eight inches tall and in. Its present condition, this Shohin has the strong potential of becoming a small masterpiece soon. The deadwood portion along with the thick lower trunk convey a rare expression of age, yet the upper foliage, strong braches, and short stature give a sense of strength and longevity despite its small size. Is also very hardy, long-lived, and tolerates many adverse conditions. The Juniperus Procumbens is a low-growing juniper native to southern Japan. There is a harmony in this little piece that can be appreciated by both the novice and the expert alike. With its graceful canopy and impressive deadwood this tree is one that everyone should try to add to their bonsai collection. On a side note; I must mention that I did consider removing the lower right branch because it doesnt help with the balance to the tree, but I decided to leave the decision up to the newest owner. The final photograph helps illustrate how the tree would appear with the branch removed. Complementing the impressive movement as well as the deadwood of this small tree is an old rectangular Japanese bonsai pot (8×6x2.5). May be slightly higher. On a side note. Ive noticed that not too many sellers talk or write about things that should be done after you receive your tree so I will give you my two cents worth. When you receive your tree unpack it carefully. Cut the tape and plastic wrap from the pot and the branches if applicable. Secondly give the tree a good watering and then put the tree in a partially shaded spot for a few days to allow it to adjust. After several days of adjustment your new bonsai can be reintroduced to bright sun. Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to fire off a message.
