A Bit of History

The art of bonsai began in China more than 10 centuries ahead of Japanese bonsai. The Chinese had a passion for flowers and the country is endowed with a wide diversity of natural flora. Beyond this, the Chinese believed that miniature objects had certain powers of magic and mysticism. The literal meaning of bonsai is 'tree in a tray' and, still today, the most desired containers are often of antique Chinese containers.

Japan and China have developed and evolved along lines. While China still maintains the traditional ancient, and often 'crude' appearance they are still very much sought after. In retrospect, Japanese bonsai are more natural and pleasing. The Japanese trees have a more refined and 'groomed' look about them. Like any other form of art, both types of bonsai have their admirers.

In the time since World War II, the bonsai experience in the USA and Europe are Japanese in origin. The Japanese trees are considered to be of the highest quality. The art of bonsai, having been kept alive for nearly 2,500 years, has its roots in the Buddhist tradition. The enthusiasm and artistic tradition, as well as the patient stewardship combine to complete the bonsai experience.
