The art of bonsai, the creation of a miniaturized landscape that fulfills the human yearning for a connection to nature in the smallest of spaces, is on display at the Garden with rotating seasonally resplendent specimens.

Portland Japanese Garden partners with local bonsai practitioners in Portland and from around the region. Bonsai on the Terrace will be rotated frequently, giving returning visitors a chance to see many different bonsai species and styles.

Additional bonsai are located in the Jubitz Oregon Terrace, second floor of Jordan Schnitzer Japanese Arts Learning Center, with accent plants placed on shelves along the stucco wall.

Please note: Our bonsai are away for the winter, safe & cozy. They will be returning to this space in the spring.
