Some photos of Taiwan juniper with spectacular tortuous trunk movement.
Comparing with Japanese juniper, Japan’s Itoigawa juniper is much better than Taiwan’s when it come to leaf quality. That may be one of reason we import Itoigawa juniper to Taiwan. Although saying this, there is a advantage of Taiwan’s field grown juniper: grow up fast. Because of it, we cultivate juniper with nice trunk movement in about 10 years. With nice quality raw material, there are much fun to shape, carve, and style Taiwan’s juniper than wild obtained material.
