Kiku = Chrysanthemum

by Triplicity Flowers

Yesterday we went to the members-only preview of the annual Kiku (chrysanthemum in Japanese) Show at the New York Botanical Garden in Bronx. From the way the show is designed to the gorgeous chrysanthemums themselves, this year’s exhibit is spectacular! The highly expected Ozukuri (thousand blooms from only one plant) is fabulous as ever. Some of the varieties, such as Flair and Winsome, are so breath-taking that they reach 12″ in diameter and even more. This is a show we highly recommend if you are in the New York City area in October!
