Native Species of Dandelion

In Bloom: Early to late April

Since the spring of 2003, we have been planting these dandelions with help from the local seniors association and elementary school students in the town of Kaizu, and they can be seen inside the garden. Although these flowers may seem small size compared to Western species of dandelion, they are found at various parts of the garden, so we hope you enjoy them.

Prickly Water Lily

In Bloom: Early August to early September

The prickly water lily, which was once seen across the Suigo region, is a precious plant species that has become endangered in recent years due to land reforms, which have replaced waterways and ponds where they were once cultivated, with land. Their leaves are usually between 0.3-1.5m in diameter, with the leaves of larger plants reaching over 2 meters. The purple flowers are small, at around 5-7cm in diameter. The unique characteristic of this species is that there are thorns on its leaves, stem, and even the flower itself.
