Of significant importance is a Dwarf hinoki cypress bonsai from the Larz Anderson Bonsai Collection at the Arnold Arboretum which was started in 1802. It was imported from Japan in 1913 and is one of the first bonsai imported into the United States. Although not the oldest Japanese bonsai in the United States, it has been under cultivation longer than any other plant currently growing in North America.
