2016 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) was held from 16/5/16 to 20/5/16 at the World Heritage listed, Royal Exhibition Building and its garden. The entry by Ikebana International at Floral Design Section won the Bronze Medal this year. It featured the inner city oasis of Japanese Garden to coincide the theme of 2016 MIFGS " Discover an inner city oasis" (Left). I created the water and land arrangement in a black trough. The left hand side of the trough shows Water lilies in Flat form (Ten, Jin and Chi).
The right hand side features the land landscape using Celosia, Miscanthus, Roseberries, Shrimp plant, Bulrush and Pyracantha. The driftwood separates land from water.
