      For more than 60 years, Ikebana International St. Louis Chapter #3 has celebrated "Friendship Through Flowers."


Our objectives:

  • To stimulate, cultivate and perpetuate the study of Ikebana  by presenting demonstrations and mounting public exhibitions;       

  • To explore the related arts and culture of Japanese life;

  • To promote better understanding among people and nations.

   Ikebana International, St. Louis Chapter #3 is open to anyone interested in sharing our objectives.  See Contact page.


What's New?

The Japanese Festival at Missouri Botanical will be held September 4 through September 6th,  We will be exhibiting Japanese floral arrangements by our members in the Linnean Building during the festival. Because of construction at Missouri Botanica and limited space in the Linnean House we will not be having hands-on activities or speakers. 


Look for to seeing you there!


As one of the largest and longest-running festivals of its kind in the United States, the Garden’s Japanese Festival welcomes dozens of performers and thousands of visitors from across the nation for a thrilling celebration of Japanese music, art, dance, food, and entertainment.
