This large Forsythia was found growing beside a small lake here in NC, spring 2002. The shrub was covered with soil to the first major bend or 8" up from the base. When removing this massive trunk, the soil fell from the rootball exposing the lower section of trunk. It's then, that I knew I had something special.


This bonsai has been in training for two yrs now, fed only heavy amounts of organic food. All branches were grown the first year. Here are some shots of the transplant done on March 8, 2004.
This bonsai was on display, in NY September 2004, at the
International Bonsai Symposium.





Measurements: Base rootage 12", three inches up the trunk measures 8". Height 33". Container: Chinese ware - 20" long, 15" wide, 5" deep.SOLD
