Cork Barked Elms in Summer

Here is a summer record shot of my shohin cork barked elm. It has suffered a slight infestation from red spider mites this year but it is under control now.

Here it is with its little brother. The tree on the right was taken as a cutting from the lower right branch of the tree on the left in the spring of 2012. Most of the growth on the cutting that you see in this pictures has occurred in the last 12 months

Close up of the branch structure, not bad for 2 years 3 months.

This is the same tree last spring in a 3 inch pot
