These men are in front of the Nippon Nursery in Pasadena, California, ca. 1915. The business was founded in 1905 by three Issei. This picture was a gift to the Japanese American National Museum, from the Wakiji Family (95.128.3)

In the 1940's, Pasadena had over 17 Japanese-owned florists and nurseries. The Nippon Nursery was the first.

This picture is part of the Landscaping America: Beyond the Japanese Garden exhibition at the Japanese American National Museum, which will run from June 17, 2007 until October 21, 2007. To learn more about Landscaping America, please visit the Japanese American National Museum website.
