Established in October 2005, the Bonsai Exhibition Garden is a signature feature of the Arboretum and a unique environment displaying up to 50 specimens at a time. Of particular importance are the plants native to the Blue Ridge, including American hornbeam, red maple and eastern white pine, which bring the thousand-year tradition of bonsai home to the mountains of western North Carolina.

Arthur Joura has been the bonsai curator at the Arboretum since 1992 and oversaw the design and development of the Arboretum’s Bonsai Exhibition Garden. Joura studied bonsai with some of the leading bonsai authorities in the United States and in Japan. He has toured extensively as a lecturer and teacher, and has been featured on UNC-TV and in numerous regional and national publications for his work with the collection.
