The Wanjing Art Garden (万景艺苑) is one of the six venues of the 2017 Taiwan BCI Asia-Pacific Bonsai and Viewing Stones Exhibitions. It occupies an area of about 5 hectares. The garden has a collection of rare native Taiwan trees, Chinese pavilion, ponds, bonsai and an art museum. It used to be a private garden, owned by Mr. Chen Chang-Hsing (陈苍興), who is also the co-Chairman of this year’s BCI exhibitions. The garden was opened to the public in May, 2014 and had hosted many bonsai events.
The following juniper bonsai were displayed specially for the BCI event, and were of exceptional quality.
I like this display a lot because of the two huge stone background, which made the juniper appeared to perch on the rock face of a mountain.
Mr. Kobayashi was also at the garden that morning, and of course, photo op with several other friends from China.
I do not know how many juniper bonsai were displayed, my guess is there were at least 50. I will post several photos without going into details who owns the trees. Some were from the Garden’s own collection, some were invited to display for the BCI event.
