A Unique Showcase of Bonsai Trees & Talent

Saturday, September 14

9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

 

Working in teams of 2, members of the Bonsai Study Group will transform average-looking Shimpaku Junipers (Juniperus chinensisShimpaku’) into one-of-a-kind bonsai trees. Each team will work independently to style and shape these dwarf, slow-growing evergreens. Our bonsai sensei Rodney Clemons will select the teams and highlight some of the key changes as the teams work.

 

The public may vote for their personal favorite with the winning team receiving a free lunch at a local Mexican restaurant!

 

ALL trees will be sold after the challenge – no tree will be priced more than $50.

A great addition to any collection!

 

Event is free, after paid admission.

Garden members FREE
