Flower decorations are used as accessories too like boutonnieres that are worn by grooms, attendants, ushers and bride and groom's fathers. They are made from single or several small buds and are worn on the left lapel of the jacket. Corsages can be worn in a variety of styles like pin_on, wrist or handheld and are made of either a single bloom or a small cluster of blooms.
My parents house was a traditional home that had the typical Japanese garden in the back with various different trees, plants and many seasonal flowers. I grew up playing around our Japanese black pine, Japanese plum, loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) and pomegranate trees, all the while enjoying the azaleas, camellias and many other flowers that my father nurtured with so much love and dedication. I also remember that we had flowers that were originally introduced in Japan from foreign countries, such as Amaryllis (Belladonna Lily), roses, daisies, and dahlias. So while our garden was very Japanese in style, I can now see how it was more like a display of universal nature.
