Discover the timeless appeal of an ancient horticultural art form as the California Bonsai Society presents its 62nd annual show, featuring dozens of beautiful specimens created by bonsai masters. Additional examples can be seen in the permanent display in the Japanese Garden's Bonsai Courts.

A highlight of Saturday’s program includes a replanting of “Goshin III,” a bonsai masterpiece created in the 1990s by the legendary bonsai master John Naka. “Goshin III” is one of two replicas Naka made of his original “Goshin,” or Guardian of the Spirit, a forest-style bonsai featuring 11 junipers. (That original bonsai is now at the U.S. National Arboretum; Goshin III resides at The Huntington). “Goshin III” had been ailing for a number of years and the planting was dis-assembled so the trees could be brought back to health. The replanting takes place between 1 - 4 p.m. in the Botanical Auditorium (lower level of the Botanical Center) and is led by Jack Sustic, former curator at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, DC.

General admission. Brody Botanical Center.
