    Red spider lilies<3
    In Japanese, they're called Higanbana.

    In Hanakotoba ("flower meaning"), they mean "Never to meet again/Lost memory/Abandonment".

    I'm also quite partial to orange lilies and and tiger lilies.
    I LOVE lilies!

    I also seem to be attracted to forget-me-nots for some reason...



    Usually, I don't really like the color blue, but this flower just speaks to me.

    This is my favorite flower - it originates from Japan - fitting because of my past...



    Dan Fogelberg wrote a song in the early 70's about a girl named after this flower and I've always loved it since my childhood.

    It's called 'Wisteria'. I shortened 'Wisteria' and changed the 'i' to 'y', and that's how I chose my screen name here.

    You might enjoy this site. Ashikaga Flower Park. Close to my place, they have the most amazing Wisteria.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Awww we call that 'Blue Rain' in Dutch. It's sooo beautiful. Also kinda invasive and pushy though. That thing can tear apart a building and spreads like wildfire, just so you know

    Still, it's incredibly beautiful to have it framing your front door. There's plenty of people here that plant it for that reason

    Actually, your picture shows a Wisteria sinensis. And as the name suggests, this plant originates from China, not Japan.

    ---

    On the other hand, the old Wisteria shown in the Ashikaga flower park is a true Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda var. Longissima). You can guess it because the hanging racemes are much longer than with the Chinese Wisteria.

    I like and grow a variety of flowers, but appreciate the fuchsia blooming right now.
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    A couple of people mentioned this so here is a video of it. I recently watched a documentary about how they relocated it to the park. It was amazing what they did.

    those wisteria remind me of banyan trees, in the way that they spread out from a centralized source, and make a canopy:
