Saturday, November 5, 2016

Sunday, November 6, 2016

On November 4-6, 2016, Lan Su Chinese Garden hosts the Ninth Moon Floral Design Showcase, Lan Su’s annual floral design exhibition created in partnership with the Floral Design Institute. Ninth Moon is presented in conjunction with Mumvember, an annual celebration of the chrysanthemum.

The Ninth Moon Floral Design Showcase is a juried floral show with each entry including chrysanthemums as a part of the display. Designers will use floral design styles and forms that utilize fresh floral materials and foliage in their entry. The exhibition is designed to celebrate the beauty and significance of chrysanthemums and recognize the floral art and creative talent of floral designers in the Pacific Northwest. The event is free with admission or membership to the garden.
