    This Ginkgo biloba was grown in an open field. While it was growing there, the plant was pruned and shaped to become a bonsai. When it reached maturity it was transplanted in a bonsai pot in a formal upright style with its shape refined like a “flame” according to the natural behavior of the tree. The photograph shows the ginko in autumn, its leaf color suggestive of the season.
