Join the Florida Museum for a special, time-limited experience featuring Penjing landscapes inside the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit!

For four weeks, from Sept. 30 through Oct. 29, visitors may enjoy this distinct form of garden art. These miniature landscapes capture the Chinese appreciation of natural environments. Penjing sculptures convey an artistic vision of nature, including mountains, water and small plants.

This display is included in the Butterfly Rainforest admission price.

The sculptures on display are the creations of University of Florida professor of horticulture John Peterson and master penjing artist Qiao Hong Gen.
