Kids indicated their great interest in penjings and showed their admiration
This year, HKBU participated again in the Hong Kong Flower Show organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. A total of 8 miniature masterpieces selected from the Man Lung Garden were showcased at the Flower Show 2023 to promote the traditional art of penjings.
With the theme of “Bliss in Bloom” featuring “Hydrangea” as its theme flower, the Flower Show was held at Victoria Park from 10 to 19 March 2023. HKBU’s penjings which included “rock growing ficus microcarpa (Chinese banyan)”, “ulmus parvifolia (Chinese elm)” and “pinus thunbergii (black pine)”, have attracted the admiration of many visitors.
The Man Lung Garden was set up on the HKBU campus in 2000 with the generous support from the late Dr. Wu Yee Sun, “the Sage of Penjing”. Its precious penjings have been displayed in the Hong Kong Flower Show for nearly 20 years, and received several awards previously.
