The gloriosa is the pride of Misato City in Kochi Prefecture, where it is famous for being the flower’s largest producer in Japan.
By the way, the gloriosas grown in Misato are also exported outside of Japan, so flower lovers around the world can appreciate the flower’s beauty in their very own home.
Gloriosas have long petals with waved edges, with the stamens appearing to protrude from underneath the petals. These petals curve inwards, and in some varieties, as you move along the petal from the base, the yellow transforms into a brilliant red at the center.
The gradient color scheme of these lush flowers’ petals will surely captivate you. And gloriosas are just another reminder of Kochi's beauty!
