Fuchsias As Bonsai 2012


Most people wouldn't think of fuchsias when it comes to bonsai, but there is even a website devoted to this!  Here is my first effort.  'Amber Rose' is about three years old now and has three trunks twined together which you won't be able to see until I prune it this spring.
A task made difficult when they are blooming!  So hard to bring myself to cut those off!
Some fuchsias grow so big so fast, it would not be a good idea to use them for bonsai.
Others like 'Amber Rose' grow slow and dense enough to make perfect candidates.
If you'd like to see her beginnings, you can check it out in the Fuchsia Forum of DavesGarden.com
