Entries are now open for the 2020 7th US National Bonsai Exhibition which will be held on September 12-13, 2020 in Rochester, New York.
The quality of bonsai has risen tremendously since we first began organizing the US National Bonsai Exhibitions in 2008. Competition is especially tough this year. With limited space available, only the finest, well developed bonsai can be accommodated. Also, in order to provide a diverse display of bonsai, species are also heavily considered when selecting bonsai for display. While most exhibitions in the United States, as well as in Japan, only show about a dozen or so varieties, the last US National Bonsai Exhibition featured 127 different species and cultivars! A large number of Sargent, Japanese Garden and collected Junipers submitted, so Junipers are evaluated more closely so only the most unique and beautiful bonsai are displayed.
