SPIDER LILIES,GROWING IN COLONIES.

There is a area where spider lilies grow in colonies in Saitama,very near from Tokyo.
                   About 5 million lilies would bloom almost at the same time.

        埼玉県日高市の巾着田に行きました。500万本の彼岸花が一斉に咲きます。

Spider lilies at Hidaka city in Saitama.

高麗川が蛇行して、巾着の様に見えるので、巾着田と言われています。




彼岸花は染色体が三倍体なので、株が分れて増えて行きます。




シャガも三倍体です。クローンが逆に長所になってます。



By macro lens.







White color. 白い彼岸花。

中国から来た、二倍体の花と受粉して出来たという説と
突然変異という説があります。アルビノでは無いと思われます。
