Inspired by nature, and guided by man, bonsais personify the perfect tree. With an abundance of superb color photographs (many full-page) and information about cultivation, you can enjoy the bonsai's beauty and harmony: the structure and shape of its trunk, architecture of its branches, surface roots, crown of leaves, and seasonal changes. Choose your favourite style and species from the directory of broad leafs (such as the fire-red fruited quince), evergreens, tropicals (intoxicating jasmine), and kusa-mono (miniaturized grasses). This book includes the Common Name, Latin Name, Age of the Plants featured, the Classic Form and what it looks like throughout the year. Techniques, How to Plant, Cultivation, Diseases, Pruning and Watering.
