Redleaf rose, Rosa glauca from Kita-Sorachi Kouikiren

Today, we would like to introduce redleaf rose, Rosa glauca from Kita-Sorachi Kouikiren (regional federation of agricultural cooperatives), Hokkaido.

Since the beggining of this month, redleaf rose has been available shipped from Fukagawa city, Hokkaido, where redleaf rose is one of the local specialities.

Eight growers make a lot of effort and try to supply stable amount of the seasonal cut-tree branches, although the producton amount is decreasing due to the aging problem.

This year, it densely bears vivid-red berries. As the supply is expected to decrease gradually from the peak season right now, we recommend you to have a try asap.

Kita-Sorachi also brings autumn-colored hydrangeas, spiraea japonica, symphoricarpos and so on to our market.

By all means, please grab redleaf rose and other seasonal cut-tree branches from Kita-Sorachi!

Akita Obako Agricultural cooperative “The Disbud Mums”

Today, we would like to introduce the Disbud Mums cultivated by Akita Obako Agricultural cooperative. Currently, only one producer from the cooperative brings those Disbud Mums to OTA. It is located in the cool highland, so the cultivating period is longer than the one for other items and the producer has to make a lot of effort to grow good quality Disbud Mums. The main varieties of Disbud Mums are feeling-green, golden-ping pong and super-ping pong. The trade will start from the next auction date with limited amount. Give it a try and enjoy its vivid color and long vase-life!

Let’s enjoy feeling the changing of the season with the flowers from Shonai.
Plenty of flower varieties are cultivated in Shonai region, reaching 30% of share among all flowers produced in Yamagata prefecture. The diversity comes from rich varieties of terrain, such as intermediate-mountain areas at the foot of Mt Chokai and Mt Gassan, the flat land of the Shonai Plain and the sand dunes near the sea.
Especially, stock, lisianthus and lily are main items in Shonai region, accounting for more than half of the production in prefecture.
In addition, they cultivate flowers that color your life throughout the year, such as Japanese spray mum, celosia and Keio-sakura (cherry blossom).

TS Mericlone CO. Ltd.✦cherry blossom collection

Grower:TS Mericlone CO. Ltd.
Family:Limonium sinensis (cherry blossom collection)
Period:17-28 May


We displayed the cherry blossom collection of Limonium sinensis which has many different colors, each having some subtle differences in color, light and shade. Few flowers fall and it lasts for a long time.

These double-petal varieties bloom like lumpy rice grains at the early stage of blooming, and as they bloom further, they become fluffy spheroidal petals!!
You can enjoy different views depending on when you see them.♪♫♩
These can also be enjoyed as dried flowers.

✤TS Mericlone Co. Ltd is a nursery located in Yamanashi prefecture. Through meri-clone technology they provide an improved statice nursery plant to growers all over Japan.

Please take a look at Limonium sinensis which receives abundant sunlight in Yatsugatake,
so it grows energetically on the test fields.

Photos show both the whole flowers and a close-up of the flowers.☟☟☟
