Phoenix graft, Juniperus scopulorum / Juniperus shimpaku

This is a tenuki, a tree that fools a person. We created a phoenix graft bonsai by attaching a shimpaku to ancient deadwood. We've been working on this phoenix for about 15 years. The shimpaku is vigorous and looks natural and the deadwood looks as ancient as anything I've seen in books. The deadwood is probably 400-500 years old. We found it at high elevation in the Medicine Bow Mountains

We've named this bonsai creation "Dragon Licking Armpit". Our Japanese friends are all aghast at this disrespect. But, we call them as we see them.

Because of the huge expanse of deadwood we had to support it in the back for stability. You'll notice a small prop and a guy wire on the back side.

Here's your chance to have a wonderfully old creation at a very reasonable cost.

Overall height is 27", height from the soil surface is 24"

The price includes all packaging, handling, and shipping charges, a $300.00 value. Your bonsai will be packed in a sturdy container filled with styrofoam peanuts and strapped to a pallet. We ship via UPS Freight. By shipping in this manner we have had no damage to trees or pots. You'll also end up with enough peanuts to take care of your Christmas needs for several years.
