Chinese cities were historically crowded with little privacy. The most valuable land within the city walls were the gardens. These were miniature representations of the farms and fields that most people could only dream of.The walls of the garden were incorporated into the intricate design of the gardens. Exotic flowering plants planted in wall niches and crawling vines growing on the sides added extra intrigue.The 4 1/2" x 9" vase and polished river rock provide the anchor for our Garden Wall ArrangementThis design lends itself to different size arrangements, each larger and grander than the previous. The height option is measured from the bottom of the stalk to the top of the largest stem in the arrangement. All of the arrangements are of the same width and vary only in height.The pictured arrangement is the 30" version.
