One-Of-A-Kind Shimpaku 'Kishu'
Shimpaku junipers have fine qualities, especially suited to Bonsai culture. Tiny needles which can be pinched at the end of well ramified branches, producing a cloud like effect. Generally vigorous, they respond well to proper hard pruning. The red under-bark is a beautiful warm tone that can be used to highlight the jin and shari carving. Shimpaku junipers are in the top tier of Bonsai specimens for these reasons, and more.
The Shimpaku Juniper is native to Japan, the Kurile Island and the Sahalin Peninsula. It prefers rocky, well-drained soils. In its natural range, it is most often found growing near the sea. The foliage is needle-like on young trees and scale-like on older trees. One of the best characteristics of Shimpaku is its hard resinous wood; ideal for advanced sculptural techniques such as jin, shari and sabamiki.
