Garden Gallery: Higashimokoto Flower Park in Hokkaido, Japan

Are your phlox blooming yet?  In new England we are not quite there yet….but in Japan, well that is a different story.

This is Higashimokoto Flower Park in Hokkaido, Japan and this is what it looks like from mid May-mid June.  I came across it today as I was looking for more information about moss phlox.  It is quite a spectacle and it reminds me of  countless earthen reservoir dams….wouldn’t this be a fantastic way to replant after the earthworks?

The park was started and mostly built by one man, Chubachi Mr. Sueyoshi.  He began in 1947 after the war with just one plant which he built upon, spread and managed.  My Sueyoshi died in 2009 but the park is still open to visitors and creeping phlox currently cover over 10 hectares.  You can read more about it here.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
