A Kinshi-bai (Hypericum patulum) flower in Engaku-ji temple
"Kinshi-bai" blossoms in the gray rainy season of summer and its vivid golden flowers and fresh green leaves look brilliant in the gentle rain of June.
The name "Kinshi-bai" means "a plum-like blossom with golden threads" because its flower looks like a five-petalled blossom of plum and the yellow fine stamens of the flower look like the threads of gold.
