the beauty of moss phlox/shiba zakura

My friend (Japanese) just uploaded her garden look on twitter this morning, and the pinky color on the middle was catching me up.

I asked her about it, and she said that that’s flowers, named "moss phlox" in English, but Japanese called it "shiba zakura". And she sent me this picture.

Wooaahh~ they looks so beautiful with those colors!! 

Not only pink, but purple!! ^^

And then I googled about them.. wikipedia says:

Phlox subulata (Moss Phlox, Moss Pink, Mountain Phlox) is a perennial creeper growing to a height of 6 inches and covering a 20-inch-wide (510 mm) area. The small, five-petaled flowers bloom in rose, mauve, blue, white, or pink in late spring to early summer. It is native to North America.

According to one news story, the plants give off an odor that can supposedly be mistaken for marijuana. This has been known to cause altercations between gardeners and law enforcement personnel or criminals.

But, my friend said that they’re not smelling!

Here is some beautiful pictures of the landscape with moss phlox/shiba zakura. *and it makes me want to go to Japan! ><


They’re so beautiful, right? ^^

I’m not a flower lovers or whatever it names. I just love the beautiful scenery~ it makes me feel comfort, even if it just a landscape of green grass or greeny farm ^^

My friend said that "if u visit to my home,it’s the best this season!!", ah~ i wish i could.. enjoying spring in Japan, it would be nice! ^^

Ah, btw.. some sites called them "flower carpet" ^^

Thankyou Naka-san for sharing those beautiful flowers ^^

*sorry for my bad english ;)
