'Graceful Perseverance' is a presentation of bonsai whose uncommonly poetic forms reflect those of trees that have adapted to extreme conditions in nature over countless years. Often dramatically windswept, bent, and twisted, these arresting specimens embody a lifetime of purposeful training under the expert hands of bonsai masters. The exhibition, on view in the C.V. Starr Bonsai Museum, features a selection of the Garden's renowned collection of nearly 400 trees, long considered one of the best on public display outside Japan.
