Very few plants or trees have the history, tradition, and legacy that surround bonsai trees. Originally cultivated and cared for in ancient China, there are many legends that surround these trees.
Their unique, twisted, non-symmetrical shape has been said to resember dragons, snakes, and other fierce animals and spirits. Bonsai trees soon became legend in Japan, originally as a part of Zen Buddhism. In both cultures, the trees were considered rare and possessed by the social elite. Bonsai has had a front row seat in many royal gardens and gathering places.
Bonsai are less revered in the U.S., and not an integral part of the culture, but they carry a special meaning when gifted to someone. Absolutely unique and individual, the life of a bonsai is dependant only on the care of the recipient. Take excellent care of them and they can last for hundreds (yes, hundreds) of years.
