ONONOKOMACHI is the name of historical Japanese poet who left a lots of beautiful writing in Japan. This variety is very unique and none of others have this feature, very special. The flower never opens and stay like match stick. After while flower dries up and finish. Yes, it does not produce fragrance, seedling is not available but it is kind a nice to think every plant you will own is original and could be from 100 years ago. This variety is old well-known variety but somehow registered very late. this variety is highly regarded in Japan and registered to Fukiran chart in 2015.
