Miniature Bonanza: Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection (Federal Way, WA)


Bonsai has always been a beautiful and mysterious art form to me. For over a thousand years, artists have practiced bonsai (penjing in Chinese; bunjae in Korean), the formidable feat of shaping source material into miniature trees through skill, patience and imagination. The Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection has a permanent exhibit, which is free-of-charge. I was mesmerized by specimen after astonishing specimen. It would be understatement to say that I was lucky to have seen the Kirishima Azalea in full bloom (see above). The collection is entirely owned and operated by Weyerhaeuser Company in Federal Way, Washington.
