芝櫻 / Moss phlox, or Pink moss


Hokkaido Flower Information
Moss phlox, or Pink moss
The best season for moss phlox, or pink moss in plain English, is from the beginning of May to the beginning of June. It’s called shibazakura, and sounds somewhat like the cherry trees species. However, pink moss is completely different from cherry trees. Pink moss is seen blooming on the ground and a beautiful, unique vision of a carpet of pink spreads out before one’s eyes. In Hokkaido, Ozora Town and Takinoue Town are especially famous for large scale shibazakura vistas. In the suburbs of Sapporo and even in downtown Sapporo, pink moss can usually be seen in the parks.
