The Japanese Flower Show

This time of year, when it is cold, damp and gray outside, it’s always a pleasurable escape to visit a local flower show.

Recently, I attended New York City’s Japanese Flower Show featuring the wide range of cut flowers available for export from Japan to the United States. More than 300-varieties of flowers were organized and displayed by the Japan Flowers and Plants Export Association, the Naniwa Flower Auction Company, and various Japanese prefecture organizations. The show included beautiful cut sweet peas, ranunculus, and Gloriosa lilies, and so many more. It’s a wonderful opportunity for wholesalers, florists, event planners, and gardening enthusiasts to see the many varieties and colors that can be obtained.
