Japanese GardenCSULB to Host Japanese Garden Chrysanthemum Show on Oct. 31

The Japanese Garden Chrysanthemum Show will take place at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB on Sunday, Oct. 31, from noon to 4 p.m. The event is presented by the Japanese Garden, the Long Beach City College Horticulture Department and the Orange County Chrysanthemum Society (OCCS).

“Wine tasting, art and flowers combine to make this event the most lovely fall garden show in the South Bay area,” says garden director Jeanette Schelin.

Award-winning chrysanthemum flowers will be showcased in this nationally-juried Chrysanthemum Society of Orange County show. Chrysanthemums, Japan's Imperial symbol, will be placed throughout the garden, including a special display featuring cascades, disbuds and morning star varieties.

All of these flowers, as well as the popular bedding mums, will be available for purchase throughout the day. Proceeds from the flower sale will benefit Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden educational programs and OCCS.

Every year, the Miller Japanese Garden presents a wide selection of chrysanthemum varieties and uses, and this year is no exception.   The event will include wine and tea tasting, floral displays and art activities at the kiku art studio.

The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden is located on Earl Warren Drive, directly across from Lot 16, on the Cal State Long Beach campus. Admission to the event is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for Japanese Garden members. CSULB students, Long Beach City College students, and children 12 and under will be admitted free.
