No garden today is untouched by the legacy of Japan’s gardening culture, not only in terms of the plants themselves, but especially the hard graft of Japanese immigrants who put down roots and built successful nurseries and cut-flower farms in the United States. The movement of Japanese plants through Japanese American nurseries and into our lives today is a story of political and economic upheavals, an echo of societal mores and the perseverance and optimism of the quintessential, American immigrant experience.
