Japanese Wistaria 藤

Japanese Wistaria  藤 (also spelled Wistaria or Wysteria)

Fuji, pronounced the same way as Mt. Fuji, are beautiful pale purple flowers with vines that bloom in late spring.

They grow wild in fields and mountains, but, to appreciate their beauty, the vines are trained over a trellis and the flowers are drooped down from it.

Each bunch of fuji measures from scores of centimeters to one meter and scores of centimeters in length, and beauty is found in the bunches swaying (like waves) in the wind, which are referred to as fuji waves.

A pale purple color is generally called fuji color.
