Kubota Garden


Pine trees

This is one of the many pine (matsu) trees in the garden. It's in the Tom Kubota Stroll Garden.

According to the brochure, the stroll garden "features long views, many places to sit, and stone from the high Cascades. It was designed and built in 1999 by Tom Kubota, son of Fujitaro, and a generous benefactor of the garden. The west entrance displays an extraordinary 32-foot-long Weeping Blue Atlas cedar, several Weeping Norway Spruce, a Camperdown Elm and a grove of Cornus mas."

Fujitaro Kubota used a variety of plants - both what you would expect to find in a Japanese-style garden, but also used plants native to the Pacific Northwest.
