Japanese garden at my office site

The friendly Japanese person who has leased my office space maintains a beautiful Japanese garden.

The garden has numerous plants and flowers, including some trees that have been planted more than 50 years ago. Here are some blooms from the Japanese garden.

    The Japanese garden is beautiful! I think the mystery flower is a ladies slipper, a lovely flower I have not been successful in growing. I have to admire yours!

    The mystery flower is Cypripedium japonicum. I think the variety may be ‘Sweet Lips’ but I’m not sure if is a hybrid or the species.

    They think this is pollinated by a bumblebee, but no one has ever caught it in the act.

      Perfect answer. Yes, it is exactly as you have mentioned. There are about 5 or 6 plants in a bunch under a shade tree; only one bloom. I look everyday to see if any other flower has come up but not this year, I think.

    Wow, fabulous topiary! I’ve planted some Dodonaea viscosas that I plant to prune into cylinders as they get big enough, to create some sculptural elements in my garden.

    Lovely garden. I always admire gardeners who have the discipline for such perfect pruning. Cheers!

    Hi Gururajr: LIZA AND JOHN’S GARDEN enjoyed our visit today.

    Gardens are funny, they do things their way even though you think you have control of them. You don’t you are just the assistant. You can guide them, help them and they let you think you have control. Do You? Your blog shows how Gardens and Mother Nature do their thing. They are a visitor in your world as you are too there’s. As you learn to blend with them they do the same with you and all is great.

    Have a wonderful day,
