Typical winter garden flower in Japan

It is Rose cabbage !

You can not miss them in winter. Because it’s typical plant for the new year in Japan. Maybe because of the colour, red ( well, it’s not proper red though) and white, the combination is for “good luck” ” happiness ” etc .. anyway something good. So many public places ( such as city council enterance, station etc ) they place these plant with bamboo and pine. It is the Japanese new year decoration ! 🙂

And also cyclamen and cypress , it’s popular for winter too. Mainly they are for Christmas though.
