Default Penjing vs Bonsai

Penjing and Bonsai have basically the same translation. Penjing being Chinese and Bonsai Japanese. The style differs in the sense that Penjing uses more rock plantings and gives more detail to the bare wood and roots than the Japanese which is more restr
icted to the balance between all the components of a Bonsai tree. e.g trunk branches and pot.
this is how i learned about Penjing. I believe there is a sight somewhere on The Shanghai Gardens in Hong Kong. that stresses what is referred to as Penjing. A very impressive display
