This Japanese Apricot came to me via Luigi Trapani of Southeast Bonsai Studio. Of all the diligently refined trees sitting on Luigi's bench, this one really communicated to me. During one of our trimming sessions, Luigi kindly allowed me to work it. I ended up leaving Savannah with it after parting with some of my nice J. maple stock. I've determined that it could have two fronts, so I plan on moving it to a round container when it begins to break dormancy. Still looking for that right container. It is a pink blooming cultivar, but I have not exposed the tree to warm enough temps to induce blooming.

I like the angle on this first photo...
