Bonsai in Bloom: Satsuki Azalea Display Is Online in 2020
Each year, donor and bonsai expert and collector Melvyn Goldstein provides us with blooming Satsuki azalea to display in our outdoor bonsai and penjing garden.
With the Satsuki display “Bonsai in Bloom” postponed this year we offer the exhibit online. Join us for this virtual tour of the exhibit. Here you’ll find video, stories, photo galleries, and more of Satsuki azaleas.
