HSM Lecture: Holly Shimizu: Great Gardens of Japan

Cylburn Arboretum Association

Holly Shimizu has been traveling to Japan for many years with her husband, Osamu, a Japanese garden designer. Based on a wide variety of gardens visited on recent trips, she will focus her lecture on the qualities that make a Japanese design so intriguing. This includes the art of rock arrangement, moss gardens, Japanese pruning, hide and reveal, borrowed landscape and miniature gardens. She will also explore the spiritual nature of Japanese gardens.

Holly Shimizu is a nationally recognized horticulturalist with a rich background in public gardens. She was the first curator of the National Herb Garden at the National Arboretum in Washington D.C. She was the executive director of the U.S. Botanic Garden, on the National Mall, where she was responsible for all aspects of running the garden, which experienced a renaissance during her leadership. She recently held the position of interim executive director of the American Horticultural Society.
