- In Action
In Chinese culture the Narcissus embodies the spirit of the hope of Spring. Often arriving in late winter, it provides a preview of Spring during the cold of winter. Often referred to as the 5th gentleman, it combines the spirits of the winter plum blossom and the spring grass orchid. The workshop lesson walks you through a delightful composition depicting the idea of Narcissus from its dainty flowers to its long leaves and finally its signature bulb.
