Narcissus Shoka

4504We practiced two-stem Japanese Narcissus Shoka = “Denka” arrangement on February 5, 2013, by using common Paperwhite Narcissus.

Unlike Japanese Narcissus, which is very hard to get here in Colorado at this time of the year, Paperwhite has a lot shorter and softer leaves. So, we were able to make only a very small arrangement, about one-foot tall. It was just a practice to maintain HAKAMA (white seath at the bottom) to show Narcissus’ Shussho (original character).

Students enjoyed a bit time-consuming process of this “Denka.”
