Tropical bonsai at the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum
The National Bonsai and Penjing Museum in Washington D.C. contains a number of bonsai that need far more warmth and humidity than D.C. winters can provide. They are housed in a greenhouse at the museum where they are currently thriving despite the impending cold weather. I’ve included photos of several below along with a few trees from the North American and Chinese Collections.
As before, the photos are presented in order of number of years in training, beginning with the longest in training. The banyan below has been in training since 1906.
