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 this after-hours tour of the garden with the bonsai curator for a personal and informative overview of the art of bonsai and the Arboretum’s own creative approach. Foliage is at its freshest at this time of year, and flowers will likely be blooming in the garden landscape and on select bonsai.
