Malaleuca/tea tree

Postby alpinebonsart » Tue Sep 22, 2009 8:26 pm

This was a little pot of gold i found yesterday buried in silt from the fires .I
looked down to spot a green tinge on the track and after scraping the mud away a little tree appeared .It was cleaned , trimmed of the damaged twigs styled and potted .Almost and instant Yamadori Bonsai .

Absolutely magic Alpine. That's a brilliant find (Y) Regeneration from bush-fires is amazing. "From the ashes rose the Phoenix".

Hi Taffyman yes its a good looking tree ,amazing how much wont regenerate over here, the fires were so intense it is as arid like as a desert in some of the hills .Time does heal all , hope i recover quicker .Cheers

That really is one helluva find. Such tenacity in so small a tree deserves to survive and thrive.
