A great stop in Wimberley where you can see a huge variety of bonsai trees respondent in their seasons. You can also purchase a bonsai of your own.

We stopped here with a friend that had once owned a bonsai and was curious to see this place.

The exhibits were quite nice and some very reasonably priced bonsai. I would definitely recommend... More

We visited this exhibit and were struck by the expert care given to the beautiful various aged and sized trees in such a non-commercial environment. I expected a polished sales area and greenhouse full of displayed prices, and doozies to buy. However, I found real plants and real people willing to educate me in this art. We really enjoyed it.

If you have the opportunity to drive through the town of Wimberley you need to check this gem of a place hidden in the hills of Texas. The owners will assist you in choosing the right tree to fit your personality and budget.

There are many better places to buy a bonsai at much better prices than this! The grounds are in a pretty location, but the buildings and the displays do not match the setting. We will not bother to stop again.

Very cool place with a variety of bonsai plants. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable. One of these days I want to buy one of these fascinating plants. Worth at least a quick stop and walk thru.

The owner is a kind and knowledgeable older man that definitely loves the art of bonsai. He answered all our questions and helped us understand the art of bonsai, particularly in Texas Hill Country. The trees are beautiful, so many different kinds- take your time enjoying the beauty of the art. I don't think I would take small children because... More

Very small and quaint. A nice selection of bonsai specimens. The owner was very kind and knowledgeable. Took time to explain the history, technique and origins of bonsai.

The people are very knowledgeable about bonsai trees and have a huge variety in the "museum". They also have a variety for sale at a variety of prices.
