The Arboretum’s Bonsai Exhibition Garden in Summer: Curator’s Talk & Tour

August 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Event Details


Bonsai Exhibition Garden

Established in October 2005, the Bonsai Exhibition Garden is a signature feature of the Arboretum and a unique environment displaying up to 50 specimens at a time. Of particular importance are the plants native to the Blue Ridge, including American hornbeam, red maple and eastern white pine, which bring the thousand-year tradition of bonsai home to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Join Bonsai Curator Arthur Joura on this entertaining and informative after-hours tour of the garden at its peak, a fitting showcase for the specimens. As Joura says, “The two things are one: The garden is designed to elevate the experience of bonsai, and the bonsai never look better than when they’re on display in the garden.”   Photo credit: Gloria Crouse
