bonsai without the tree?
Came up in a conversation the other day and hoping someone here might know the correct term for such.
I realize traditional bonsai utilizes a woody plant such as a tree or shrub. However, I recall seeing plantings done using grasses or other plants as the center of focus with a very "bonsai-like" feel to them. Unsure whether would be considered a form of saikei -- though they were not landscapes -- or just a form of nontraditional bonsai (which might have its own term) or something else entirely.
