Spring flowering – Crab Apple

Spring seems to have started slowly here at Shibui Bonsai. Lots of rain keeping temps a little lower than usual but the trees have responded to the warmth and started to grow.

Here’s a photo of my one and only crab apple bonsai taken today.

It is not actually a very good bonsai usually but when it flowers in spring the display draws the eyes away from any other problems.

Flowers in this variety are followed by tiny apples that eventually mature to yellow fruit about 6mm diameter.
