Taxus Baccata

Taxus Baccata progression by Andres Alvarez Iglesias

This Taxus Baccata Bonsai is truly wonderful. I saw it on display at the Noelanders Trophy in 2015 and again last weekend at the Bonsai San Show.

It was styled by Andres Alvarez Iglesias and David Benavente. We managed to get Andres in front of our camera to do an interview on the tree's history and progression.
