The Japanese Garden, Seiwa-en, covers 14 acres (5.7 hectares) and its lake is 4.5 acres (1.8 hectares). Designed by Koichi Kawana, it was dedicated in 1977.








Tropical aquatics are prepared for planting in the garden in a state-of-the-art propagation house. Raised tanks have individual temperature controls. 

Each year propagator Steve Wolff raises enough Victorias to share with St. Louis' other legendary gardens, Tower Grove Park and the Jewel Box.
