Sumo? Gardenia

This is probably thickest gardenia of ours.

I haven't got a clue If I used "sumo" in a right way. Westeren bonsai enthusiasts call fat trees like this as "sumo" is this correct? My gosh, Japanese is asking how to use Japanese lol!

Yes you are using it correctly. The thick trunks remind us of the mass and sheer power of a sumotori. However I often find them lacking in grace and spirit a necessity for sumotori. (My favorite sumotori was Terao, a long time ago.)
I hope this comes across as something more than gobbeldigook.

Re: No title

Thank you very much for your clarification. I really appreciate:-) Terao became Shikoroyama oyakata and he was my sister's favourite sumotori. My favorite one was Akinoshima who was well known as Yokozuna killer.
