The Bonsai Garden at NC Arboretum was a public bid won by Cooper Construction and completed in 2005.
"Established in October 2005, The North Carolina Arboretum’s Bonsai Exhibition Garden is a world renowned garden that hosts up to 50 bonsai specimen at a time. Represented are traditional Asian bonsai subjects such as Japanese maple and Chinese elm, tropical plants such as willow-leaf fig and bougainvillea, and American species such as bald cypress and limber pine. Of particular importance are the plants native to the Blue Ridge region, such as American hornbeam and eastern white pine, which enable the Arboretum to bring the thousand-year tradition of bonsai home to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Interpretive signage throughout the garden conveys information about the art and history of bonsai, and the Arboretum’s own creative approach to it." - NCArboretum.org
