Fall Foliage Day
Autumn marks one of the most significant seasonal transitions in bonsai, as the trees pull all their resources down into their roots and deciduous bonsai put on a colorful display. It is a fleeting moment to behold and enjoy. Come celebrate autumn and the changing of the seasons at Fall Foliage Day on Saturday, October 28 from 10am – 4pm.
Fall Foliage Day is an event we hold annually in conjunction with the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden’s Fall Foliage Festival.
