Terminology

In addition to their styles, our collection features trees with particular styling treatments, or ‘tags’. Most of these terms are not mutually exclusive. These are defined below so that you can digitally sort our images for these features.

Shohin
Shohin are bonsai specimens slightly under 8” / 20 cm tall. It is especially challenging to maintain shohin as an art - part of why they are appreciated. They also allow people to have bonsai when they have very little space available.

Moving to Leadership

A bold future beckons: engaging people new-to-bonsai while deepening our existing relationships and networks. Everything depends on our specimens being exemplary. As we on-board one of the continent’s most important private collections, we’ll be refining our existing collection and expanding our audiences. We need your help – spreading the word, coming to see the specimens through the year, learning more, and supporting us.
