Throughout the ages, Chinese, Japanese,and Koreans have given distinct meanings to particular plants. Of the many symbolic plants, pine, bamboo, and plum form a special group known as the Three Friends of Winter. These three friends stand out with vibrant greens and fragrant blossoms in the bleak landscape. Yayoi Shinoda will discuss the cultural significance of these symbols through visual representations, poems, and tales.
