This November, 25 of the most accomplished floral designers from Oregon, Washington, California, Montana, Idaho and British Columbia go head‑to‑head and flower‑to‑flower, in the second annual Ninth Moon Floral Design Showcase. Held in the pavilions of Lan Su Chinese Garden November 6-8, 2015, this highly anticipated design competition tests the creative imaginations of these amazing artists as they create stunning displays – all of which feature the chrysanthemum, one of China’s most culturally significant flowers.
In addition to the 25 floral artworks on display, the Ninth Moon Floral Design Showcase includes a series of floral art demonstrations by Vancouver, B.C featured designer and floral educator Louisa Lam, AIFD CFD CPFD, on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8.
