Sweetgum (Sweetgumbonsai15)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Just lifted this spring and direct-potted, this Sweetgum is a nice upright example of the species.

This design (which the tree seems to have chosen for itself) has the branches concentrated in the upper part of the tree.  I think it looks nice this way; something different.

The trunk base is 0.75″ and it’s 15″ tall.

Nice Chuck Iker pot.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum11pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Here’s a terrific natural twin-trunk I lifted earlier this year.

Nice complementary movement of the trunks.  Growth is strong now, and it should be ready for wiring a little later in the season.

The main trunk is 1.5″ in diameter and it’s 14″ to the chop.

Sweetgum (Sweetgum8pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, I really love the movement in this trunk.

Notice the new leader is emerging at just the perfect spot to continue the trunk line.  Ready for an initial wiring in June.  Can go to a bonsai pot in 2018.  Nice trunk character.

1.5″ trunk, 11″ to the chop

Estimaged Age: 8 years

Sweetgum (Sweetgum7pre)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, this is a nice stout specimen with very nice taper and trunk character.

The trunk is 2″ at the base, and it’s 10″ to the chop.

It’ll be ready for an initial wiring next month.

SOLD: $95 (delivered)

Sweetgum (Sweetgumbonsai13)

Sweetgum – Liquidambar Styraciflua

Collected last fall, this Sweetgum was recently slip-potted into this fine Byron Myrick oval, which should complement the fall color nicely.

The trunk is 1.5″ at the base, and it’s 13″ tall.

I did some preliminary wiring on it, but more will be done next month.

I really like this composition.  The trunk has a lot of character, and I can see a fine bonsai here in just a couple of years.

SOLD: $235 (delivered)
