"Fukakirekomi sunazuri koazami nakaba rangiku sibuiro kazukire makiginu yae Bankaen"; Deeply cut sand grinding thistle-like leaf and polymorphic brown multi-petal rolled double flower Bankaen

It is quite interesting that the leaf is thistle-like. The terminal part of the petals in the double flower rolls up and becomes like a roll of silk fabric. The cultivator of this plant is Bankaen, editor of this picture book.
