Outline of Exhibition

Traditional Primroses

The Botanical Garden of Everyday Life has held primrose exhibitions under the title “Traditional Primroses” since 2002.

“Traditional Primroses” refers to a series of primroses of many varieties that were cultivated by plantsmen from Japan’s unique wildflowers from the middle of the Edo and until the Shōwa Period. The colors of the flowers vary range from a faint red or purple to white, and the shapes of the petals also vary from flat to pincer-shaped. These primroses with their variety of colors and petals will be exhibited along with an innovative display of how primroses were traditionally appreciated: on the unique, tiered primrose display stand that has been donated to our garden in 2003.
