This extraordinary specimen came to me in a collection of neglected trees bought a few years back. I saw dramatic potential then, even half dead, and with burned foliage. Fortunately, Japanese Maples are resilient species, and I was able to refresh the tree’s vitality enough to save it and create a unique presentation. Now approaching thirty years old, it has reached a level of maturity and repose. Pottery container from Isabelia studios in the Czech Republic.
