History: This tree was spotted by Phil in  a bonsai nursery in Japan whilst on honeymoon in 2013. It made it’s way back home and after quarantine Phil was able to start improving the image. Choices were made during a workshop with Peter Warren towards the end of 2013 and the work carried out can be viewed on the video below. The tree was recently repotted into a      pot.

This tree was selected for Bonsai30 due to it’s quality and maturity of foliage.
