Spiraea japonica 'Goldflame' Bonsai Progression Series

June 2006 and the tree is in flower. The tree was potted into a freeform-oval pot by Vic Harris of Erin Pottery in the spring, the red-brown colour of the pot matching that of the bark perfectly. The tree has been planted quite low in the pot this year to help the nebari/surface roots develop, hopefully these will grow well enough to reveal next year.

Current height of tree 12"/30cm

In order for the tree to flower it has been allowed to grow freely since leaf break in Spring, when flowering finishes it will be pruned back hard and the foliage developed until the end of the year.
