What is Chrysanthemum morifolium |Kengai style|
Kengai style(Kengai-bed, Scientific name：Chrysanthemum morifolium | Kengai style |） is one of the methods of chrysanthemum arrangement that imitates trees and grasses hanging down from the rocks of a cliff with small chrysanthemums. A large number of flowers are arranged on a single wild chrysanthemum (small-flowered chrysanthemum) stem to form a large spindle shape.
The more the flowers bloom, the thinner it becomes toward the tip, like the pointed shoes worn by the young man in Tarancino's movie "Pulp Fiction" or the young man's regent head. When exhibited, the flowerpot is placed on a high pedestal and allowed to droop. What appears to be several stems are the piers of the stand.
Small chrysanthemums are those with a diameter of 9 cm or less.
