Bonsai @ Longwood Gardens

Bonsai

bon” tray, “sai” planting

In the main Conservatory @ Longwood Gardens you will find Bonsai on display.

Bonsai first appeared in China thousands of years ago. Art form meets Horticulture. Bonsai is as diverse as any other Art form. There are five different styles, formal upright, informal upright, cascading, semi-cascading, and slanting or windswept.

These specimens represent hundreds of years of pruning, clipping, and training. Come tour with me…
