This is a tree I acquired a year and a half ago from Scott Lee from Blue River Bonsai. It came originally from California. I have enjoyed growing and training this species quite a bit. Although not much to speak of as far as autumn color goes, it is however, a striking tree when the leaves fall and the tracery of its bare branches are punctuated with the bright orange fruits that last well until late autumn. Autumn 2015. Summer 2016. Earlier in spring it was repotted into a beautiful Koyo pot. It flowered well but, except for one, all blooms eventually fell off and the tree produced only a single fruit. I have read one theory that persimmon bonsai should be protected from rain when in flower. Another one is to not fertilize these trees until fruit sets. Not sure how much truth there is in any of it. If someone has tips please do share. The tree now in autumn 2016. It is being trained and refined as a semi-cascade bonsai.
