I bought 2 Ume “whips” for in-ground garden trees in Jan 2019, before I knew any better and before I knew of the nicer bonsai cultivars (like Beni Chidori, Kobai, WB Clarke, Matsubara Red, Hokkai Bungo, Omoi no Mama, etc.).
The 2 ume whips I got were from TreesofAntiquity online store - a White Ume (Shiro Kaga) and Pink Ume (Koume).
Planted them in the ground when I got them (so, almost 2 years in-ground now). But, often, I kinda think about it and regret it… as there’s so many nicer cultivars I’ve learned of (like the ones above).
I actually never heard of ‘Shiro Kaga’ (single white) and ‘Koume’ (single pink) Ume before; especially used for bonsai. Are there any made into bonsai? Any pics??
Are the ones I got even any good or decently nice looking?
