Juniperus rigida midsize.
This Rigida isn’t ramificated well enough to be maintained through soft pinching.
The preparational trim during a couple of years until there is sufficient compact ramification.
After pruning. This fall the tree will be wired one final time and next spring it will be ready for maintenance through soft pinching and from there on during further development. One must be aware it will take 15 to 18 years of preparatory work going from first styling to this stage with all branches well fixated. The last developmental phase with soft pinching is the most important one for the image of a rigida. This beautiful quality mid-size tree in an antique tokoname pot is for sale.
