The art of bonsai originated in China over a thousand years ago and later found its refinement and popularity in Japan. The refinement of bonsai in Japan is closely associated with the development of Zen Buddhism, which emphasized simplicity, harmony, and a deep connection with nature. Bonsai began to be cultivated as objects of contemplation and spiritual reflection within Zen temples and gardens. Take a look at our Pink Azalea Bonsai which seems to be very popular among the bonsai trees. Bonsai’s are very rich in culture and represent the harmony and balance that is found in nature. The careful cultivation and shaping of the tree symbolize the harmonious coexistence of humans and the natural world. Send Plants understands the importance of the bonsai tree and wants to provide our customers with a wide variety of trees. Growing and caring for a bonsai tree requires a close and intimate relationship between humans and the tree. Bonsai trees can be looked at as a pet that needs constant attention, care, and nutrients; their owners foster meaningful relationships with the plant since they can be tedious to tend to. Bonsai enthusiasts invest time, effort, and care into nurturing and shaping the tree, mirroring the relationship between humans and nature. Bonsai trees aim to capture the essence and beauty of a full-sized tree in miniature form. By carefully shaping and training the tree, bonsai artists seek to replicate the intricate and unique characteristics found in nature.
