Old World Bonsai Plaza 5/3/17


This Shohin Trident maple is one of a large group of bonsai displayed on a plaza in Treviso, Italy.

Getting a deplorably late start this morning, so we’ll take a quick journey back three years to a unusual post about some Bonsai on an Italian plaza. I have no idea if it was a one-off situation or they’re still displaying bonsai there to this day. 

I think this the first time we’ve featured bonsai on a plaza. In Italy, or for that matter, anywhere. The displays belong to Barbazza Bonsai. The city is Treviso. You can visit Barbazza on facebook or on their website. Or, best of all, you could go to Italy.

BarWhat could be better, sidewalk cafes, old world architecture and bonsai?



Another great bonsai and architecture shot. Looks like Treviso is an old walled city.

An old Yamadori pine with a terra cotta tile roof (another ubiquitous feature in southern Europe).
