Brooklyn Botanic Garden – Bonsai Virginia Creeper

May 31, 2011 at 1:00 am Leave a comment

Although it is often mistaken for poison ivy, I am a steadfast fan of Virginia Creeper and I’ve seen a lot of it in my day.  I’ve seen it in my yard, on the Appalachian Trail and on travels.  I’ve seen it creep and take over abandoned dams. I’ve seen it turn a gorgeous burgundy in the fall and I get to see Virginia Creeper any time I look at the State Seal or the State Flag of Virginia.

But at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden earlier this month, I got to see something new. Virginia Creeper…as a Bonsai Tree! : )
