Watasuge (Cotton Grass)
Watasuge (Cotton Grass) has a mass of seeds embedded in its cotton ear. Cotton flowers are often called ‘Sparrow’s spear’ for its spikes at the tip resembling a spear. The modest light green color of the flowers adds subtle beauty to the field. Looking at them softly floating in the breeze will make you admire their adorable presence. Watasuge (Cotton Grass) has a special meaning to it in the flower language--‘Mixed feelings.’ (Best time to see: Middle to Late June.)
