Higan-bana (Lycoris radiata) flowers in Kaizo-ji

The red flowers of Higan-bana are blooming like immobile crimson flames in the sunny corner of the garden of late October.

Higan-bana is a poisonous and bulbous plant and bears no seed. Although its flower displays glaring colors and a magical figure, insects never visit this spectacularly flamboyant flower.
