What’s Beautiful Now: Kiku in Fall

Posted in What's Beautiful Now on October 7, 2020, by Matt Newman

From traditional kengai (cascade) forms, to contemporary and imaginative butterflies, our Japanese kiku are the stars of fall.

After 11 months of careful training by our expert horticulturists using techniques perfected in Japan over many centuries, these famed chrysanthemums are now on display around the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and the Leon Levy Visitor Center, adding sculptured shape and vivid color to the season’s beauty. Experience them here now through November 1, and revisit how the ozukuri—or thousand-bloom kikutook form in the lead-up to our 2019 exhibit.
