This tree went through quite a lot of changes this year but I think I like the new design.
As purchased this past winter.
After initial styling. I was never happy with the result and searched for a new path throughout the year.
After some growth, I noticed the top died back. This prompted me to change the design.
Vigorous in the summer.
Second styling of the year.
And the tree after wiring.
This is how the season ends for this tree. I hope that the tree is vigorous next year and I can work on the ramification. I will also be repotting to try and get it down gradually into a suitable pot.
