Brazilian Rain Tree Styling Workshop (Saturday, May 18, 2024)

Indulge in our annual highlight, the Brazilian Rain Tree Bonsai Workshop — a perennial favorite among enthusiasts. For those without a Brazilian Rain Tree in their collection, worry not; our nursery offers a selection available for purchase, starting at $125.

The Brazilian Rain Tree (Pithecellobium tortum) stands out as an enchanting bonsai species, prized for its delicate foliage and distinct characteristics. Originating from Brazil, it has become a sought-after choice due to its aesthetic appeal and adaptability to bonsai cultivation.

Led by the esteemed Dr. Luis Carreiro, MD, a renowned expert and accomplished Brazilian Rain Tree artist, this workshop is a unique opportunity to delve into the history, pruning techniques, design principles, and proper care of your bonsai.

Dr. Carreiro, with his award-winning Brazilian Rain Tree, earned the people's choice award in 2015 and recently clinched "Best Tropical" at the 2023 Nationals in Rochester, NY. Don't miss this chance to learn from the best and elevate your bonsai craftsmanship with insights from a true master of the art.
