World's Most Beautiful Trees Photography - The Portland Japanese Garden is a traditional Japanese garden occupying 5.5 acres located within Washington Park in the west hills of Portland, Oregon, USA.
The Japanese Garden - Portland, Oregon. Reminds me of Alice In Wonderland.
Japanese Maple Tree--- The many branches and different colored leaves of the tree are a symbol of the beauty of nature, of calm and peace, and that is the significance it has in traditional Japanese songs and stories.
The Portland Japanese Garden is a 5.5-acre haven of tranquil beauty nestled in the west hills of Portland, Oregon, directly above the Rose Gardens in Washington Park, composed of five distinct garden styles. As a Japanese garden, the desired effect is to realize a sense of peace, harmony, tranquility and to experience the feeling of being a part of nature. In a deep sense, a living reflection of the history and traditional culture of Japan, influenced by Shinto, Buddhist, & Taoist philosophies.

Train them to climb in the appropriate direction. With some patience, it is even possible to let it grow as a tree. Provide support using a sturdy climbing pole next to the main trunk.

The generic name is derived from the Greek word kelos, meaning "burned," and refers to the flame-like flower heads. Species are commonly known as woolflowers, or, if the flower heads are crested by fasciation, cockscombs. The plants are well known in East Africa’s highlands.
