Foliage pad

A foliage pad is a term used in bonsai to describe a mass of leaves that forms a cloud-like shape on a branch. Foliage pads are created by training each branch and carefully pruning the spreading twigs to ensure ample leaf growth. Foliage pads are often seen in juniper bonsai, where they can be shaped by wiring and trimming the foliage mass. Foliage pads help to create a more mature and realistic appearance for the bonsai tree.
