About Japanese camellia flower:The fact that the flowers bloom in early Spring (or late Winter) have made them an important symbol of this season. In fact, the character used to write ‘tsubaki’ uses Chinese elements which mean ‘Spring tree’. Tsubaki flowers are particular in that unlike the other blossoms representative of Japanese Spring such as the plum or cherry, which fall away petal by petal, the camellia flowers drop off as a whole. The distinctive thud of a tsubaki blossom dropping to the ground in Japanese is called ‘boto’. One can easily picture the unique scene under the tsubaki trees, where large bunches of intact flowers litter the ground.
