2008 IBA Spring Bonsai Show

The IBA returned to holding a spring bonsai show as well as an annual fall show. The theme of the spring show was The Art of Bonsai, held on April 19-20 in the Des Moines Botanical Center’s splendid show house. The goal was to highlight not only bonsai but also the Iowa Bonsai Association and the future of the Bonsai collection at the Botanical Center. Associated exhibits and demos supplemented the bonsai display.
