The Bonsai Show wraps up the Botanic Garden’s spring indoor show season. Co-sponsored by the Albuquerque Bonsai Club, the bonsai show will be held in the Garden Showroom on Mother’s Day weekend.
Members of the club show their best bonsai of different styles and species of trees--including conifer and deciduous trees. The ancient art of bonsai is brought to life in New Mexico through local tree varieties such as alligator juniper, mountain mahogany, piñon and sagebrush.
Questions will be answered by long-time members who are actively engaged in growing bonsai. Bonsai demonstrations will take place on both days, and informational exhibits will show the processes involved in creating miniature art from a variety of trees.
