Fall Floral Show: Mitate: A Japanese Garden
September 7 - October 27, 2013
About the Show
The 2013 Fall Show at the Krohn Conservatory is titled: “Mitate; A Japanese Garden”. It will showcase Japanese plants, Bonsai trees, a Koi pond, and a small tea house in a pleasant landscape setting. The stars of the show will be hundreds of traditional fall blooming chrysanthemums, the unofficial national flower of Japan and subject of the emperor’s Imperial Seal.
Mitate (pronounced me-TAH-tay) is the Japanese word for “to look again” or “to see with new eyes”. It is a way of expression that gives freshness and an element of surprise, thus providing an intriguing experience. The concept as it pertains to the Japanese garden is expressed by using something old in a new way to help the viewer engage with the landscape. The use of Mitate can be an important tool to express an aesthetic goal and, at the same time, it can be considered a process of sharing an appreciation for the past and preservation of tradition.
