Today I got a few snaps showing the attractive berries on this Cotoneaster that I grew from a hardwood cutting a few years ago. I’ve got a few of this species either growing in pots or the ground but this is the only one that displays red berries and I really like it at this time of the year. Back in May it had some tiny white flowers so this is a future bonsai that I know I’ll enjoy looking at throughout the year.
I hope to give it a first styling soon, perhaps at a club night with a bit of advice from others. There’s a couple of options that I can see: a cascade using the drooping branch at the back right, perhaps a slanting shohin using the thicker main trunk, maybe even being drastic and chopping most off to create an upright mame bonsai. I’m open to suggestions 🙂
P.S. Can anyone confirm is this a Cotoneaster Microphylla?
