    I am a fan of the Ginkgo biloba myself. Informal uprights.

    You can't kill them with city pollution, they don't catch many pests, and when cramped they stay small.

    I've been doing bonsai for 13 or 14 yrs, tried various species and my favorite by far is still the Shimpaku Juniper. I have had one since I started and have gotten more since. Can't ever have too many Shimpaku.

    Thanks. In my main folder, yes, but not in the Satsuki exhibition folder. Those are from a Tokyo bonsai show that a friend attended.

    My Shimpaku looks naked compared to how it was yr before last. It got red spider mites and neem oil killed them very quickly, but the damage was done. That was the first trouble of any kind in 12 yrs at that time. Can't get much more trouble free than that.

    can you guys please answer my questions
    Shimpaku
    Shimpaku
    Shimpaku LOL

    From my experience Lilacs suffer a lot of twig die back, maples are very choosy about water and light, and crabapples take too much care in seeing that fruit load is limited as to not break branches. Get a nice Juniper, maybe a Shimpaku.
