57th Annual Show
The Kusamura Bonsai Club hosted their 56th Annual Show on the weekend of June 24-25, 2017. Hundreds of people visited our show and watched the demos on Saturday (Jonas Dupuich) and Sunday (Gordon Deeg and Sandy Vrooman and Marsha Mekisich and Sean Morris). We hope you enjoyed our show. All trees were part of the benefit drawing at the end of the program.
Thanks to club member Sabrina Huang for her professional photography expertise. We'd like to share a pointer to some of her work -

Medium-to-Large Sized Bonsai
In our club most bonsai fall into the Medium (10 to 24") or Large (> than 24") categories. Smaller sized bonsa are called Shohin. There are also very large to enormous bonsai (up to 80" tall) but we don't show those at this show. If you're curious how anything so large can be a bonsai, the answer is simple. Any tree grown in a pot can be a bonsai - if it has been styled. But few bonsai outside the Japanese Imperial collectionare that large.
Shohin are smaller sized bonsai, between 3" and 8" tall. Here are a collection of shohin that were at our show.
