SPECIAL EXHIBITS AT US NATIONAL BONSAI EXHIBITION

Upper Courtyard Completion

We are again fortunate to have the support of the following botanical gardens, arboreta, collections and organizations which will be displaying at the US National Bonsai Exhibition. Outstanding bonsai from these distinguished collections will be on display for the visitors of the US National Bonsai Exhibition.

US National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, Washington, DC
Montreal Botanic Garden, Montreal, Canada
Chicago Botanic Garden, Chicago, IL
Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn, NY
North Carolina Arboretum, Asheville, NC
Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA
Bonsai Society of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Burlington, Canada
Karamatsu Bonsai Study Group, Montreal, Canada

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.
