The Meteorological Agency declared that the rainy season had ended in late June, but it often rains so heavily throughout Japan. After the heavy rain the scorching hot days attack us. In spite of this pitiless weather some flowers are blooming beautifully and charmingly in Makino Botanical Garden. In this blog I’ll introduce these kinds of flowers in July.
This is wild Hibiscus which is native to Japan. Yellow and beautiful flowers bloom in the morning and wilt in the evening. They are at their best only in one day.
This is a kind of lily. The flower is hanging down. It is an endangered species. Seybold admired the charm of the beautiful flower which is native to Japan.
These flowers are blooming in this picture, but they look like buds. The first part of the name, Tsubomi means buds in Japanese.
In Makino Botanical Garden some flowers and plants are preparing to bloom next month. I’ll introduce these flowers which will bloom in August.
