Homecoming Forest Floor Planting
in the Outdoor Exhibition
In the Japanese Garden (Outdoor Exhibition), “Homecoming Forest Floor Planting” is created. The planting include a combination of spring flower bulbs that start with tulips, followed by perennials including lilies, which were introduced to the Netherlands by Japan.
This naturalistic garden expresses the transitions of the seasons in a purely Japanese way.
These techniques were learned from the planting in Floriade 2012 in Venlo in the Netherlands, and evolved in a way unique to Yokohama through the activities with the citizens in the Garden Necklace Yokohama in 2017.
Such activities in Yokohama are “returning home” and introduced in the Homecoming Forest Floor Planting in Floriade 2022 in Almere.
These activities started to spread in the other areas of Japan in their appropriate manner.
Combination of Spring Flowers (As of Apr 14)

Utilizing the opportunity of Japan Day (national day event in Floriade 2022) on Sep 7, Expo 2027 will be promoted in the main exhibition stand between Sep 2 and Sep 14.
