2009 Kiku Show at the New York Botanical Garden


2009 Kiku Show at the New York Botanical Garden
Chrysanthemum ‘Autumn Eyes’

What a difference a week makes. Last Sunday we were attending the Maui Ukulele Show and this Sunday it was the Chrysanthemum Show at the NYBG. This years show seemed a little toned down (what doesn’t these days?) on the decorations but as far as the plants go it was the best ever to me. There seemed to be more different and interesting Chrysanthemums.

The Pillar type mums were fantastic and while they may have had them at previous shows I didn’t remember them being all together and prominent. The large mums were gorgeous as were my favorites the cascades. All in al the show, which I have heard will be the last (not sure), is worth attending.



There was some nice fall color at the garden. When you put that many plants together the tapestry of color you get in the autumn is amazing.
