Cotoneaster Horizontalis "Coral Beauty" (Duggy) Pt II
This tree was pot bound and requires a new pot. The only reason it was in such a large pot was to develop roots on one side.
This pot will be her new home for now. The tree has established a fabulous root pad. I merely did a slip potting today. The internal depth of the pot is a mere 1.375"
Front, this shows the greatest movement and trunk detail. The natural slant suits this tree well in my opinion. The roots below the soil support the tree as a slanting tree should be supported.
... a different angle
... the back
As time continues I will need to edit the top of the tree and reduce the height of the crown as well. Presently the tree sits 8 inches above the soil line. I would like to see this tree around 6.5-7 inches.
