IRIS, EUPHORBIA & GYMNASTER (アイリス, ユーフォルビア, ミヤコワスレ)

Spring flowers are in bloom one after another.  Now we can look at blue and white German iris flowers and light green euphorbia flowers in the central flower bed.


This is wild euphorbia; Euphorbia helioscopia which I found at the roadside.  It can be seen at in southern part of Japan.


White flowers of Gymnaster savatieri are also blooming under the plum tree.  Its Japanese name is 'Miyako-Wasure', which means 'Forgetting the Capital (Kyoto)'.  This name derived from a story of an emperor who was condemned to exile in 13th century.  He could forget Kyoto when he looked at this flower.
