About Ikebana - Nageire

Nageire and Moribana share the emphasis on the natural beauty and characteristics of flowers and plants with the more traditional Rikka and Shoka styles.  However, Nageire and Moribana are arranged much more freely.
Vases for Nageire are cylindrical often tall and generally have a narrow mouth.

In Nageire, stems are usually inserted into vases without using Kenzan (pinholder). There are various of methods to hold stems at the desired position.
