This bougainvillea was a gift I gave to my grandfather while visiting him last October. It came back into my care early this spring. I went ahead and chopped it back to start training it as a shohin.
As received this spring.
After the chop and wire.
Repotted and cut back this summer.
And the most recent picture. I have started feeding this with bougain, so hopefully, I will have a picture in bloom someday! I hope to develop the branch structure and aiming for a shallow wide canopy. This is still many years from being a good bonsai but this one has a special meaning to me.
