Accent or 'companion' plantings 

as they are sometimes known 

are grown to complement bonsai trees 

when being exhibited. 

They are placed near the bonsai and often reflect

the tree's character, adding a natural element to the display.



Ornamental Grass

A good accent plant can be charming in its own right and

may be displayed on its own or as part of a group.

However, when next to a bonsai tree it must not be

overpowering or become the dominant feature.

So many different species and varieties of plants are

 suitable for accent plantings that the possibilities are

 almost endless and it becomes a matter of individual

 choice. Even plants considered to be weeds can be

utilised to good effect.
