Walter Imahara and his sister, Lily Metz, spoke about Imahara’s Botanical Garden in St. Francisville on Oct. 9 to the West Baton Rouge Garden & Civic Club.

After telling stories about the Haiku carvings done by their father, James Imahara, and telling their family history, Imahara led a tour of the 54-acre garden to view shrubs and trees planted in groups of threes and fives. The nine reflecting pools were named after James Imahara’s nine children.
