The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB will host its annual Chrysanthemum Show on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Enjoy award-winning chrysanthemum flowers in this nationally juried Chrysanthemum Society of Orange County show and view blue ribbon winners in many magnificent shapes and colors, some larger than your hand.
Hundreds of chrysanthemums will be placed throughout the garden creating a carpet of glorious color to celebrate the autumn season. Many varieties of the flower, including cut and potted mums, will be available for purchase throughout the two day event at reasonable prices.
“Visitors will be awestruck to see the garden illuminated with 500-square-feet of brilliant chrysanthemums placed in the garden for this event only. The design of the show was inspired by chrysanthemum shows held in Japan near castles and inside public gardens,” said Alison Redfoot, education coordinator for the garden.
While enjoying the garden guests may try their hand at various flower art activities inspired by the beauty of the chrysanthemum. Tea and treats will be available for visitors to purchase and boxes of refined green tea can also be purchased from Den’s Tea.
The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden is located on Earl Warren Drive, directly across from Lot 16 on the CSULB campus. Admission to the event is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for Japanese Garden members. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.
