I will be buying and planting a 3 foot DH Cypress tonight in my garden. I want it to have the bonsai look where the trunk is contorted. From what Ive read, the best way to do this is to plan it at an angle and shape the trunk with wire. My second choice is to buy a 3 foot juniper tree. Im not sure which will best give me the 'Japanese bonsai' look, or which one will meet my ideal requirements for height (under ten feet) and for how easy it is to shape or have nice extended limbs... Since Im brand new to all of this, Im checking to see if Im on the right track. Of course any hints or suggestions on how to accomplish this look for this type of tree would be appreciated. Thanks!
