Little trees, big impact
These little trees tell big stories of themselves, their artists, and those imagined by viewers. They celebrate relationships and somee demonstrate generations of care. Bonsai brings people together to admire the trees and each other.
Enjoy nationally and internationally ranked specimens of azaleas and pines of all sizes. An array of bonsai developed by American-trained artists are complemented by rarely seen wild-collected ancient trees.
Styles help each plant tell their stories and inspire reflection. They include the number of plants, how they relate to the pot, and the visual movement the composition inspires. These styles are rooted in 2,000 years of the art’s development.
Bonsai are made to be beautiful. They harmonize horticultural and aesthetic techniques of miniaturizing trees to embody the principles that govern nature.
Each generation of artists engages with bonsai slightly differently, giving a momentum to how they are understood and shifting the various kinds of ‘meaning’.
