Just a quick blog this evening featuring a wonderful flowering species for bonsai, Huckleberry (blueberry). I’ve only been working with them for four or five years now, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how freely they bloom in a pot. It only takes a year in a pot before the flowering begins. Each year, the show gets better. There’s fruit as well. This specimen is entering its third year in a nursery pot. This year it’ll go into a bonsai pot.
You may recognize this specimen as one in my collection that I recently potted. Not to let that stop it, it’s put on a pretty decent show considering how much work was done to it in the past year. Just wait till next year. I’ll be posting Huckleberry specimens for sale this spring, so stay tuned if you’d like to have one on your bench.
