Crape Myrtle Bonsai Side Project — Cascade

While the large tree continues to get aggressive treatment for scales, I thought I’d show you what’s been going on with the runner sapling.

I made the mistake of leaving it outside after the last round of photos and some of the early, big leaf growth and buds got scorched. However, this is not necessary a problem as early budding, pruning and die-back will produce interesting trunk structure later.

My multi-selection of wire arrived last week in preparation for the re-potting of the big tree, so I do have some 1mm that I’ll be able to use to begin guiding this fellow into the two primary directions that I want from him, soon. However, I do think I want to let the stems run just a bit more, first.
