Niwaki Kenzan Flower Frog, Medium

£18.00

Currently Unavailable

We call them flower frogs; in Japan, they're known as kenzan. No one really knows why they're called frogs, but one might guess it's because they're usually found sitting quietly underwater. Kenzan means 'sword mountain', which is much more obvious.

If you're unfamiliar, a flower frog is designed to sit in the bottom of a bowl or vase filled with water. The sturdy brass spikes hold flower stems in exactly the shape you want, which is why they are essential for ikebana and useful for western-style flower arrangements where they do away with the need for floral foam.

This medium-sized kenzan is perfect for creating artful displays of flowers in a vase, bowl or dish.

  • Made from brass and lead with a rubber base
  • Overall dimensions: 6.1cm x 6.1cm x 2.4cm
  • Weight: 257g
  • Made in Japan

Advice and Inspiration

Brand Focus

Niwaki

When it comes to making tools for cutting, chopping, snipping or shearing, no one knows their craft better than the Japanese. Niwaki, meaning simply 'garden tree', is a Wiltshire-based company founded by Jake Hobson in 2004. Having learned his craft in an Osaka nursery, Jake returned home with a passion for pruning that’s helped to make Niwaki the leading brand of Japanese tools, ladders, knives and accessories in the country. 

The quality and precision of Niwaki products are legendary, many of them made in small quantities by deeply traditional methods: professional gardeners swear by them. Once you've used a pair of Niwaki snips, secateurs, shears or loppers, you'll never go back to your old cutting tools again.
