ONSITE | Sunday, March 10, 2 – 4 p.m.

Many specimens in The North Carolina Arboretum bonsai collection were donated in non-showable condition. That is to say, when we received these trees they were in development as bonsai but not quite there yet. The value of these plants was in their age, with the need for a design plan and refinement being what was lacking. In bonsai, accumulated age is worth something! In this program, Arboretum Bonsai Curator Arthur Joura will look at three bonsai specimens currently in similar non-showable condition and discuss each in detail. Then all three will be pruned and set on a course toward better design and refinement. This program is presented by Adult & Continuing Education Programs in collaboration with the Blue Ridge Bonsai Society. There will be plenty of information for club members and others already familiar with bonsai technique, but people who are simply curious to learn more about bonsai in general are welcomed, too. A person needn’t be a bonsai grower to be a bonsai appreciator. Interested participants, however, are asked to register in advance to ensure seating in our Education Center space.

We’re sorry. This event is sold out and registration is now closed. You may join our Wait List for any available seats. Please email adulteducation@ncarboretum.org with any questions.
