Yaupon – Ilex Vomitoria

Collected in winter 2017, this is one is on its way to being an outstanding literati bonsai.  The trunk character is fantastic, with a natural shari running most of the length of the trunk; the movement is very graceful.  I direct-potted this specimen into a very fine Chuck Iker round, which I think complements the tree perfectly.  The trunk base is 1.5″ in diameter, and it’s 12″ to the chop.  I’m anticipating a finished height of about 16-18″.  Age is about 15-20 years.

Ships in late May.

UPDATED PHOTO – shaping up nicely!

Yaupon – Ilex Vomitoria

Collected in winter 2016, this is a beautiful twin-trunk with lots of character.  I’ve been working the design of this tree all year.  Today (10/1/16) I unwired the tree, did some carving at the chops and top-dressed.  This tree needs to be turned slightly in the pot next year or at the next repotting in 2018.  This photo shows how the tree itself will look once this is done.  The movement of the trunks is much better.

(This specimen is known to be a female, so can produce berries if a male specimen is near.)

Each trunk is 2″ in basal diameter, and the root spread is 8″.  Finished height should be about 20″.  Age about 40-45 years.  The pot is a beautiful custom piece by Byron Myrick.

Yaupon – Ilex Vomitoria

Collected in winter 2016, here’s a nice triple-trunk clump style Yaupon bonsai.  Very nice interplay among the trunks.  Hollies really grow well in summer, and this one is no exception.  I’m already getting ramification.

The neat gnarly trunk base is 3″ in diameter, and the final height should be about 16-18″.  Age about 35 years.  The pot is a beautiful custom piece by Chuck Iker.

Ships in early October.

Yaupon9-2-16-1Yaupon – Ilex Vomitoria

Collected in winter 2016, this is a nice smaller specimen with a great shari in the lower part of the trunk.  Nice base and trunk character.  I chopped the trunk in order to build better taper in the specimen.  This process will take about 3-4 years.

Basal diameter is 2″ and it’s chopped at 8″.  The new leader is now about 21″ tall.  It’ll get cut back hard next spring.  Finished height should be about 14″.  I’d estimate the age of this specimen is about 20-25 years.  (This one is known to be a female.)

Yaupon5-21-16-2Yaupon – Ilex vomitoria

Collected in winter 2016, this is a unique twin-trunk specimen.  Notice how “cozy” the two trunks are.  Today (5/21/16) this bonsai-in-the-making got its first wiring.  You can get a very good idea from this limited amount of work where this tree is going.  Since hollies grow best in summer, I expect a lot more growth for this specimen by fall.  The wire will need to come off in about four to six weeks, with another round of wiring at that time for the secondary branching.

This one has a trunk base of 1.75″ and is 17″ to the tip of the new leader.  That should be the finished height.  Age about 25 years.  The pot is a beautiful custom piece by Byron Myrick.

Ships in late June.

Yaupon – Ilex vomitoria

Collected in winter 2016, this one features a great shari running most of the length of the trunk.  Today (5/21/16) I carved the chop in order to connect it to the shari, and wired up the new leader to get it going the right way.  In another two or three weeks it’ll be time to wire the rest of the branches.

The trunk base is 1.75″ and it’s 17″ to the tip of the new leader.  Age about 25 years.

(This specimen is known to be a female, by the way, which means it has the potential for berries as long as you have a male nearby.)

Yaupon – Ilex vomitoria

Connected root/raft/clump style, five tree group, collected in 2014.  Age 40-60 years.  Base is 8″ across the front, 4″ front to back.  Finished height should be about 16″.  What caught my eye about this specimen was the terrific root base and awesome shari.  So I decided to create tapering trunks from scratch, and began that process last year.  Based on the growth rate, I expect this work to be completed in another two years at which time the final structure of the individual trunks can be developed.

Potted on December 20, 2015 in this very nice training pot.

Ships now if you’re not too far north; in spring if you are.

Price: $350 (if you want the tree shipped in spring, email and I’ll send you an invoice for a $90 deposit to hold till then)
