Legendary Flower Tobata Ayame

伝説の花 戸畑あやめ

They bloom from early to mid May. Tobata ayame are between 10 and 15 centimeters tall but they are much smaller compared with regular ayame. The flower stem is short and the flower blooms shorter than the length of the leaf. The color of the flower is purple and sometimes there are rare white ones. Also, another important feature is that the leaves can grow to over 30 centimeters long after the flowers have finished blooming. At ”Tobata Ayame Park”, the ”Otani Town Development Council” and ”Tobata Ayame Raising Association” are centered and hold festivals during the flowering season. There are bazaars and attractions, four season flower seed presents and a lottery to win tobata ayame.
