Her we see a cascade or semi-cascade and it is called literati. Probably it is a literati. But it is not really important what exactly one calls a tree. What many call ‘style’ I think should be called ‘form’ of a tree. The literat is, however as ‘style’ It can come in many forms. One of them is a cascade. It can be any other form and still be a literati tree. Literati style is a specific form of the naturalistic bonsai style in my opinion. Reply Bonsai Jack January 3, 2017 You are correct Mr Pall. Many bonsai, including this one, have multiple styles. This would be considered a semi-cascade literati. Thank you for the contribution. Jack Reply Bonsai Charlie January 3, 2017 It is a wonderful example of a tree that has more than one style! Thank you for your comment!
