Juniperus chinensis itoigawa #1
This is the first of three itoigawa junipers that I ordered from Maillot Bonsai, near Lyon in the Southeast of France, to experiment with junipers and propagate them via cuttings in the coming years.
They were 5 years old and already a bit too tick for the kind of very compacted shape I had in mind for them, but if I let them grow large enough they should be okay.
This one was ticker than the others, without any first branch that could replace the main trunk, so I picked it up first to wire it and see how it'd go.
The result was not too bad. The other two were then planned to get wired a few weeks or months after seeing how this one react.
