Hokkaido Flower Information
Ayame and Hana Shoubu flowers
The best season to admire Ayame and Hana Shoubu flowers in Hokkaido is from the middle of June to the middle of July. Both are in the same family of fauna, but they present differently. Sometimes, both are translated into iris in English. Ayame Park in Iwamizawa City and Asahi Park’s Hana Shoubu En in Haboro Town are well known spots to see them. The flowers of Ayame bloom a little earlier than those of Hana Shoubu. Ayame live in dry soil, while Hana Shoubu prefers wet soil. Both are grown at Ayame Park in Iwamizawa.
