Kochi Makino Botanical Garden Cute and Charming Flowers & Plants of June

Though the rainy season has not begun yet in Kochi, it rains a lot every day.  In spite of this humid weather, in Makino Botanical Garden various kinds of flowers are blooming beautifully and charmingly. In this blog I’ll introduce only a few flowers. Please enjoy watching them.

 

Arimaumanosuzukusa

This plant is poisonous, so most insects don’t like this. But, young worms of Jyakouageha, a kind of a butterfly eat these poisonous leaves and store the poison in their bodies. As a result, birds don’t intend to eat the young worms. So, the young worms are natural enemies to this plant. I’m sure this plants are surprised by the fact.

 

Sumomo, a kind of plum

 Makino Botanical Garden is located in Mt.Godaisan. And in this mountain farmers have produced this plum. The taste is a little sour yet fresh.

 

Himeajisai

Dr.Makino found this hydrangea and name it “Himeajisai”. But, so far wild “Himeajisai” has not been found. Why don’t you find wild “Himeajisai”?

 

Himekirinso

 Dr.Makino found this flower in Kochi. This is endangered species.

 

Ibukijyakouso

 It looks like grass, but it is a tiny tree. Their small flowers are very cute. In this photo I am touching the plant. Then I can smell the same as the thyme. 

 

Conclusion

In Makino Botanical Garden some flowers and plants are preparing to bloom next month. I’ll introduce these flowers which will bloom in July.
