The New York Botanical Garden said ‘konnichiwa’ to the fall season with its critically acclaimed Japanese floral presentation.

A media preview of ‘Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden’, an annual assemblage of chrysanthemums grown in the Japanese style of painstakingly trained flowers grown in mesmerizing forms and sizes, was celebrated on Thursday, October 6 inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

Kiku, the Japanese word for ‘chrysanthemum’, symbolizes longevity in Japan and was long associated with the emperor.

The exhibit opened to the public on Saturday, October 8 and will run until Sunday, October 30.
