Adonis ramosa (Amur adonis , fukuju-so)

¥1,300 (incl. tax)

Amur adonis is a sanyaso wildflower, a popular plant that heralds the arrival of spring. It is common in the mountains and fields from Hokkaido to Honshu. 

In Japan, this plant is traditionally used as a New Year’s decoration, symbolizing the end of winter. 

It produces clusters of small yellow flowers that look as if they are gathering, and its charming appearance makes it very popular as a pot or garden plant.


- Tips for growing Amur adonis

Growing wild in the mountains, fields, and woods, Amur adonis prefers partial to full shade. As it does not grow well in full sunlight, places such as under trees are suitable.

The humus-rich, very moist soil is ideal for the plant, with a well-drained, moist environment.

Provide water to prevent the soil from drying out, especially during the plant’s growing season. Avoid excessive dryness and moisture.

Once the plant has flowered, remove faded flowers and dead parts and remember to collect seeds before they ripen.

In Japan, the plant is known as a good-luck charm, and in the language of flowers it symbolizes “inviting in good fortune” and “eternal happiness.” In the West, however, as its scientific name derives from Adonis (meaning “beautiful young man”), a handsomel young man in a tragic Greek myth who was killed by a wild boar, the plant is known to symbolize “sad memories.”
