Korean maple (Acer pseudosieboldianum) over a rock
Rooted over a rock a year ago and recently wired for shape, this seedling Korean maple has room to grow in a blue glazed training pot. With time, ramification will be improved, the roots will be exposed, and an image of an older tree should begin to develop. For now, I am still experimenting with Acer pseudosieboldianum as bonsai. Given it’s cold-hardiness, vibrant spring growth and awesome fall colors, there is definitely potential for this under-utilized species.
