The Redwood Empire Bonsai Society puts a lot of effort into the accent plants that accompany their bonsai. Accent plants are a nice way to indicate the season and provide color to bonsai shows. I know little about what makes accents suitable to given bonsai displays beyond whether or not they “look good” to me. That, and I like them to be full. Here is a small sample of the accent plants on display at REBS’ recent show.
Accent – hen and chicks
I included a few bonsai here as they accompanied larger trees and in the case of the ilex below, provided great color.
That’s it from REBS’ 29th annual bonsai show – thanks for coming along!

I know someone in that club with 350 accent plants, probably more now.
And the 3rd one down is known in Hawaii as “Iwa Matsu.” Why, I’ll never know.
