Ikebana International (Portland Chapter #47) celebrates the chrysanthemum in this special, two-day only exhibition. Ikebana International first celebrated Kiku Matsuri, the Chrysanthemum festival, at Portland Japanese Garden in 1983. On September 9 and 10, local Ikebana artists from various schools, or styles, will create arrangements featuring chysanthemums, known as kiku in Japanese.

Kiku Matsuri, or Choyo no Sekku, observed in Japan on September 9, is the final of the five seasonal Go-Sekku festivals in Japan’s traditional lunar calendar. Chrysanthemums symbolize longevity, dignity, and nobility. A 16-petaled chrysanthemum even appears on the imperial family crest. The flower has been cultivated in Japan since it was first intorduced in China in the 8th century.

Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, has been translated as “living flowers” or “giving life to flowers,” and is unique from other approaches to flower arrangement. In ikebana, asymmetry and the use of empty space are essential features of the overall composition. A sense of harmony among the materials, the container, and the setting is also crucial.
