At the NY Botanical Gardens

Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden Opens October 5-6

Continues on through October 27, 2013

Kiku is back and more spectacular than ever! The chrysanthemum, kiku in Japanese, is the most revered of all Japanese fall-flowering plants, and hundreds of meticulously trained kiku will be on display in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Learn more about the show and the designers. Special weekend events spotlight the arts of bonsai and ikebana, as well as taiko drumming, and celebrate the importance of flowers in Japanese culture. See the full program lineup. Complement your visit with a special taste of Japan in Stephen STARR Event’s limited-run Japanese Pop-Up Restaurant—learn more below! On opening weekend, October 5 & 6, join expert-led demonstrations of ikebana—“flowers kept alive”—a complex form of asymmetrical flower arranging.

On another note, we would like to thank The New York City Association of Hotel Concierges for awarding NYBG the 2013 Concierge Choice Award for best Tourist Attraction! Fulfilling our mission would not be possible without the support of our visitors—thank you, and we hope to see you at the Garden soon! Plan your visit.
