On-site window box installation, just in time for fall. Wait till these Chrysanthemums get going - like opening jewelry boxes full of treasure!

Kagawa Katsuhiro Kizamu
Late Meiji – Taishō era, circa 1906 – 1917.
Kagawa Katsuhiro was born in the Shimoya district of Edo (later Tōkyō). From the age of 12 he studied wood carving with Ariyoshi Katsumori, a specialist in Noh masks. Later he studied drawing under Shibata Zeshin, and metal arts first with Nomura Katsunori and subsequently Kanō Natsuo. In 1903, he became a full professor at the Tōkyō Bijutsu Gakkō (Tōkyō School of Fine Art), and in 1906 he was made an Imperial Artist. Katsuhiro exhibited widely at both national and international venues. Among the latter were Nuremburg (1885), Chicago (1893), Venice (1898), Paris (1900), and London (1910).

My winter window sill.
Looks like the bud of a spider chrysanthemum….my favorite.
Pumpkins, Peppers, and Chrysanthemums….for porches.
Fall planting season is in full swing, and I spent part of the day picking up foliage plants for the 150+ container gardens I have yet to fill. But I am so easily distracted when I go to the nursery, I couldn’t resist a run through the Chrysanthemums. This one, ‘Jennifer Orange,’ made it into one of my shopping buggies. Is it just too gorgeous? (And don’t you know, that whoever “Jennifer” is, she must have the most glorious golden red hair - ever.)
I think I need a Chrysanthemum named for….well, me.
There still in triumph, stiff with gold,
The rich Chrysanthemums unfold.

Month of Flowers: the September birth flower is the Aster.
Closely related to the Chrysanthemum, the Aster is a classic Autumn flower for late summer gardens. In the event of an early frost, Asters are also frost resistant.
Here in the Southeast, ‘Woods Purple’ and ‘Woods Pink’ are the best perennial performers.
