In Plants

Pinus densiflora Pendula is a tall, broadly conical to rounded tree, becoming flat-topped, with reddish-brown, flaky bark in the upper crown, grey and fissured near the base. Stiff, bright green needles, about 10cm long, are borne in pairs and the cones are yellow-brown, around 4cm long.

We love it when it grows naturally in Kengai style which means cascade. Modelled after trees that grow from banks over water or down the side of a mountain. The apex of a (full) cascade style falls below the base of the pot. To give scope for the cascade shape, this style often appears in a tall, slender container not used elsewhere in bonsai.
