I don't think I've ever laid eyes on a more perfect plant than the Thousand Bloom Chrysanthemum. The chrysanthemum were rigorously trained to take on this dome shape, creating a garden marvel that appeared at this year's Chrysanthemum Festival at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

Created by Horticulturalist Yoko Arakawa, the Thousand Bloom Chrysanthemum certainly stole the show. Employing an old Japanese plant growing technique called Ozukuri, it took Arakawa 18 months to carefully train 991 blooms to grow in this miraculous manner.
