I would like to show you my Acer palmatum “Deshojo”. This Bonsai is beside one other tree the longest in my collection. When I bought it all those years ago in 1990, it was one of those typical bad quality Japanese import trees, that were and still are, imported by the thousands. No real Nebari (roots) or branch structure, but I fell in love with the lovely light foliage of this tree, so I had to buy it. After all these years of cultivation, it looks a lot more like a tree and I am still in love with the amazing colourful foliage, that gently moves with the slightest breeze. This little Bonsai always makes me smile when I see it flashing its colours in the wind, providing imaginary coolness on a warm Summer’s day!
