New Pot for Potentilla fruiticosa

Quite a flamboyant choice. Perhaps too flamboyant? Well, it technically is a flowering tree… although it certainly doesn’t carry that presence.

Regardless, I find it a fun change.

Old Yamaaki pot. This pot couldn't handle the winter and developed some hairline cracks.

    I think the new pot works just fine. Assume yellow flowers – they will contrast the pot and ‘pop’. Nice tree…

    I like the new pot! The feet and style just seem to go better with the twisty branches and roots. The smaller size brings out the tree more and makes me focus on the tree, in the old pot my eye was drawn more to the pot, it just looked too solid for a delicate tree.

    I feel that the new pot is more complimentary.
