SWEET-SCENTED GARDENIA (甘い香りのクチナシの花)


In our main garden adjacent to the new garden, a Gardenia jasminoides is now in bloom.  Its flowers are single (six petals) and heavily fragrant.  The fruit is used as a yellow dye, which is used for clothes and food.


(新しい庭に接するメインガーデンにクチナシが今咲いています。花は一重で花びらは6枚、強い芳香があります。実は黄色い染料として、服を染めたり、食べ物に色を付けたりします。)

There is a double-flowered cultivar in our neighbourhood.  It is also strongly fragrant and looks more stunning.


(ご近所には八重咲きの品種があります。強い香りは同じで、とても素敵です。)
