‘Kiku’ in full bloom

This is your last chance to see “Kiku: The Art of the Japanese Garden” in the Bronx for quite some time as The New York Botanical Garden’s plans mean that the Garden won’t be offering it next year.

All of The Garden’s shows are special, but “Kiku” – the name means “chrysanthemum” in Japanese – is particularly lovely, offering artistic arrangements of the most beloved of the Land of the Midnight Sun’s fall-flowering plants in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. There are also weekend events featuring the arts of bonsai, ikebana and taiko drumming. Or you can take a tour of The Garden’s Japanese trees and enjoy the bittersweet brevity of haiku in the Perennial Garden.

“Kiku” runs through Oct. 26. For more, visit nybg.org.
