GLOSSARY A collection of bonsai-related technical terms. Search terms to find out their pronunciations and meanings.


It refers to a back branch that extends to the back of a trunk. It is also called uraeda (backside branch). The branch breaks up just at the back of the trunk to demonstrate the depth of the entire tree. It is considered best when it finds itself in midway among ichinoeda, ninoeda and sannoeda (first, second and third branches). The branch that keeps balance and harmony with other branches is also good. Ushiroeda is in good condition in appearance if its roots cannot be seen but its point is seen from the front of the tree.
