This beauty is a Willow Leaf Fig Ficus nerifolia and deserves to have a unique and fantastic name. Win a free personal Bonsai workshop with NBG Volunteer Bonsai experts and a $50 dollar certificate. Our horticulture staff will select a winner from the name submissions. The Garden’s Bonsai collection is located in the Transition Garden between the Baker Hall Terrace and the entrance of the Japanese Garden.



This beautiful Japanese art form of creating miniature trees using cultivating techniques like pruning, root reduction, potting, defoliation, and grafting dates back more than a thousand years.

A public Bonsai display owned by the Norfolk Botanical Garden, maintained with assistance from a dedicated group of NBG Volunteers.
