Instructor: Della Killeen, Curator, The Japanese Friendship Garden

In this workshop we will concentrate on the varieties that grow best here in the low desert, their distribution, description,
cultivation and place in Japanese culture.

Note: because of the timing of this workshop and the blooming season of the flowers it is possible that only the camellias and some lilies will be in bloom.

Camellias: There are thousands of camellia cultivars in cultivation, with many different colors and forms of flowers.
We have three different genera growing in the garden: c. sasanqua, c. wabisuke and c. japonica. Camellia japonica, known as common camellia or Japanese camellia, is one of the best-known species of the genus Camellia. Sometimes called the Rose of winter.
Camelli Wabisuke has a special place in Japanese Tea ceremonies.
Camellia Sasanqua grows well in the low desert and is the earliest bloomer.

Iris is a genus of about 260–300, species of flowering plants with showy flowers that can be grown from bulbs or rhizomes.
Iris ensata, also known as the Japanese Iris grows from rhizomes in warm climates. In the garden we will examine 2 different iris ensata cultivars growing by our pond.

Lilies belong to the lilum genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, though their range extends into the northern subtropics. Many other plants have «lily» in their common name but are not related to true lilies. We will examine some of the lilies in our garden.

Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) is a species of flowering plant in the Pea family, native to Japan. We grow the Texas Purple Japanese Wisteria in the garden.
Its spectacular early spring blooms, which can take a few years to appear, can be either blue, pink, violet or white. Terrific plant if you have an arbor or gazebo to support it.
