Details:

Bonsai is a fascinating horticultural art form, deeply rooted in history over centuries from its early incarnation as penjing in China to what is seen now as the formal Japanese bonsai. The trees come in many forms and colors from the tiny pink leaves of a delicate maple to the rugged gray bark of an old collected pine. The pots act not only as a container but also as an aesthetic extension of the tree, and stands are chosen to enhance the view of the composition as a whole.

 

Bonsai require great care; it is a huge responsibility to care for these sometimes very old trees They become a part of and have a history with their caretakers and some are said, in folk tales, to possess a spirit. As much work as it can be, the reward of experiencing the ever-changing landscape which is a bonsai pays back tenfold.

 

The Western Colorado Bonsai Society meets every month with exciting demonstrations, styling classes, visiting experts, and great company.
If interested or for any questions please call Joyce Wingerter at (970) 208-3501.
