Jack Wikle Bonsai

By David Weiss

Just this past July, I had the chance to travel east through Michigan and discovered there are some great places to go look at some amazing bonsai.  First, I met the President of the West Michigan Bonsai Bonsai Club, Tim Cox, who told me to go visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan whenever I get the chance.  They have a premiere horticulture display garden and sculpture park along with an amazing bonsai display.  The next time I’m in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I will be visiting the gardens.

Next, I headed further east towards Ann Arbor, Michigan where you can see some amazing bonsai on display at the Matthaei Botanical Garden’s.  There you will find 3 miles of hiking trails, an indoor conservatory and great bonsai on display.  The Ann Arbor Bonsai Society also is a great resource to learn more about bonsai in Michigan.
