New this year is a special display of masterpiece satsuki azalea bonsai from Melvyn Goldstein from Cleveland, Ohio. He is bringing a van load of some of his finest satsuki bonsai to share with viewers. This group of azaleas blooms later on in the season, so our show dates have slightly been adjusted to display the colorful blossoms.
