Asian Arts in the Garden

San Diego Botanic Garden will be celebrating the art of Asian horticulture with outstanding displays, lectures, and demonstrations.

The Ikebana Exhibition features floral arrangements from the Ohara School of Ikebana, which means “fresh flower arrangement,” and can be traced back to the mid-sixth century when Buddhism was introduced in Japan and floral arrangements were laid at the altars. The Ohara School was one of the earliest of the 60+ schools of Ikebana, now spread throughout the World.

Complimenting this display will be a Bonsai Show in the Walled Garden featuring styles of bonsai from Japan, China, Vietnam, and the West. There will be displays of Tray Landscape, Saikei, Kusamono, Penjing, Hon Non Bo, Suiseki, and Scholar Rocks. This display is by the Bonsai and Beyond Club, whose members study all the above art forms.

Cost: Free with admission or membership.
