Prostrata Juniper
This is one of my favorite trees in the collection. Mrs Hatanaka was one of the few Bonsai women practicing the Art during the early 1960's in this country. Her signature style is that her most all of her trees are wider then tall. Many visiting European artists including Colin Lewis are bothered by the extended branch and have recommended shortening it or even removing it-That would be a huge mistake in my opinion . I was pleased to have it on exhibit in the 2010 National Exposition
