Bright yellow bush is favorite in Tokyo rainy season

ビョウヤナギは梅雨で一番好きな東京の草です。明るい黄色のはなびらや軽い風で動くおしべがすてきです。立ち直りがはやい草です。ほかの都市でもこの草が育っていますか?

Biyou yanagi (ビョウヤナギ) is the perfect Tokyo rainy season bush. The flowers radiate with color when the sky is often overcast. Each flower produces dozens of delicate stamen that catch the smallest breeze, and the bush overall seems very hardy for urban life, with very attractive leaves. I think its Latin name is Hypericum monogynum. This one’s growing in the section of my apartment building garden that an elderly couple takes care of.

Does this bush grow in your city?
