Accent plants are used to enhance the natural appearance of bonsai.
Full size trees growing in the wild have various other plants and natural objects around them, including wild flowers, grasses, mosses, lichens and even stones or rocks.
Small plants are most suitable as accents for the majority of displays because their size does not overpower the bonsai.
