Abstract

Author examines how Japanese ornamental plants and styles have been transported by Japanese immigrants and their descendants to Oahu, Hawaii. Plant species transported were mainly three that thrive in tropical climates : sacred bamboo, cycad and Oriental hawthorn. Styles transported included grouped rocks, stone lanterns and neatly trimmed shrubs. Such features usually made up a small part of the entire garden of Hawaiian Japanese-Americans, but they were frequent enough to suggest a display of group identity. - (SLD)
