How Do They Do That?: Ogiku, or ‘Triple Stem’ Kiku
Come visit these extraordinary flowers, just 20-minutes from Grand Central to Botanical Garden station on Metro North‘s Harlem Line. While you’re here, you should also visit the sublimely beautiful Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, indulge in a delicious lunch at the Garden Cafe, wander along the Bronx River in New York City’s largest remaining plot of old-growth forest; the 50-acre Thain Family Forest, and marvel at the beautiful fall light as it plays off the Garden’s 250-acres. The Garden is never the same two days in a row, so come spend a day in one of the world’s greatest urban gardens, The New York Botanical Garden!
The plants in the ogiku, or ‘Triple Stem,’ display are trained to produce one enormous blossom atop each tall stem.
