Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden
In the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory
The chrysanthemum—kiku in Japanese—is the most celebrated of all Japanese fall-flowering plants, and hundreds of meticulously trained kiku will be on display in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Special events spotlight the Japanese maples in the newly opened Steinhardt Maple Collection along with the arts of bonsai and ikebana, as well as taiko drumming, and celebrate the importance of flowers in Japanese culture.
