Bright garden flowers of Spring and Summer are always a delight to see.

In most parts of the world, the image of Japanese gardening is not usually associated with abundant use of brightly colored flowers. Most instead think of clean lines, meticulously clipped trees, bamboo fences and perhaps a water, or stone feature or two.

During the Spring and Summer months in Japan however, the beauty of colorful flowers are strongly embraced by most Japanese home gardeners. Western and European styled gardens have become extremely popular. Flowers of the late Spring and Summer tend to be bold in color and can be used as features against the many tones of flourishing green.

Rainfall is also regular and abundant, bringing lots of greenery as a base coloring for many gardens. Plants generally grow extremely easily in Japan once the growing seasons kick in.

There are all sorts of examples of garden sculptures and great uses of flower coloring in DIY gardens in Japan. It may surprise many, but even many ancient and traditional temple gardens often burst with color during the Spring flowering season.

The intensity of color during the growing season is in stark contrast to the bland, gray tones of Winter. And it is often a beauty worth months of waiting through cold ears and toes to see!
