Australian Plants as Bonsai Exhibition

This event was held at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra on 27 and 28 February 2021. I have been to most of these exhibitions over the years and I thought the quality of the trees on display was the best so far, so well done to the artists whose trees we all enjoyed.

Following are a few of the trees on display. I was curious why there were quite a few bonsai where the apex moved away from the viewer, it made the displays appear to be falling over (backwards) but maybe that was just me.

Blueberry ash – a really good bonsai in my opinion
Coastal tea tree – I liked this one too
Banksia – I thought this would be improved by a new/different pot
Eucalyptus cinerea – loved the wild bush look of this display
Tea tree – I really liked this one too
Sticky wattle – very different but it had something going for it
Tea tree
Saw banksia
Forest she oak
