“Shibazakura” – phlox subulata
Cherry blossoms are blooming beautifully now in Japan. This week and next week are the best time to view cherry blossoms in Tokyo. But, in my home town, they are not blooming yet. It might take another month to cherry blossoms here. These pictures show what we have now. People who live in US knows this flower as a phlox subulata. Don’t you think they are quite similar to cherry blossoms?
