Mugo Pine Bonsai Tree
Mugo pine just has to be the toughest variety of pine used in bonsai. It's natural habitat is clinging to the tree line high in the Alps where it can withstand the INCREDIBLY cold and hostile winters and dry summers. It survives the constant battering of wind, snow, avalanches and rock falls be being incredibly flexible. Mugo pine appreciates free draining soil and lots of water and full sun in summer. In winter it can take care of itself! Repot infrequently (3-5 years, 10 years + for mature trees). Feed well using a good quality organic fertilizer like Green Dream Bonsai Fertiliser. Wiring and styling work can be carried out from mid-September right through to spring. Do not pinch candles on mugo, prune new growth back by up to half in August. Mugo produces copious back budding if it has a healthy root system in good quality soil.
From a private collection this beautiful mugo pine looks to but the cultivar 'Winter Gold' which has beautiful compact foliage and, as it's name suggests, turns an attractive golden yellow in winter. A beautiful mature craggy old bonsai tree with excellent bark, some old shari and dense ramification. Just wipe over the pot and this is ready for the show bench. An extremely rare variety in a quality of bonsai that's even more rare.
