Last week was a large changeover at Kiseki no Hoshi. The theme of the display was “Japanese Garden Renaissance”.
A shot before everything in the Floral display area was planted.
Ahhhh… Just like Longwood!
For this part of the display we filled the log with sphagnum moss and then covered it with a carpet moss.
Using Japanese roofing tiles, we were able to create a display that represents mountains.
The finished result!
Look at that quality planting! Celosia, Campanula, Heather, and Chrysanthemums.

If there’s two things that I have learned so far about Japanese horticulture it’s that they love variegation and they love crazy looking habits. An amazing specimen of Rhodea japonica.
