Celebrate the importance of flowers in Japanese culture.

The chrysanthemum—kiku in Japanese—is the most celebrated of Japan's fall-flowering plants, and hundreds of meticulously trained kiku will be on display in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden presents these magnificent chrysanthemums, in homage to hanami (the traditional custom of enjoying the ephemeral beauty of flowers), spotlighting a centerpiece of unforgettable kiku trained to grow in a mesmerizing variety of shapes and styles.

Learn more about the show and the designers. Complement your visit with a special taste of Japan in Stephen STARR Event's limited-run Japanese Pop-Up Restaurant.

Special weekend events spotlight the arts of bonsai and ikebana, as well as taiko drumming.
