This website is composed of albums of wildflowers and trees found in and around Shimane, one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, inclusive of Hokkaido. Shimane is situated far west of Tokyo, it facing the Sea of Japan on the north, and the south side edges being cut off for the most part by steep mountains. The long-running mountain ridge forms the prefectural boundary between Hiroshima and Shimane. The western end of Shimane borders on Yamaguchi, and the east end on Tottori.

 

 

Pseudolysimachion ogurare / San'intoranoo, endemic to part of Shimane, critically endangered.

The four seasons in this part of the world are very distinct, and atmospheric temperature ranges from below 0 to around 34 degrees Celsius, depending on the season. Meantime, generally, there is relatively lots of rainfall. As to the type of soil, in most areas, it is acidic, ranging from pH value 5.0 to 8.0. In light of those, I gather this part of the world is blessed with environmental factors that create the diversity of flora.
All the flowers are broken down into four categories by season, and new photos will be added from time to time or replaced with predecessors.

All the thumbnail images on this website accompany italicized scientific name followed by Japanese name in non-italic. You might click on a thumbnail image to enlarge or click on the scientific/Japanese name beneath it to see more images.
