Description

At Longwood Gardens, this is one Chrysanthemum plant trained to grow like a tree.

Why is a Thousand Bloom special?
The method for growing the Thousand Bloom originated in China and Japan more than 200 years ago. A
dying art form, there remains only a few growers in the entire world skilled in the techniques needed to
grow a Thousand Bloom. Longwood Gardens’ team of growers is led by Yoko Arakawa, who has trained
in Japan with the master chrysanthemum growers.
