Mother’s Day and carnations go hand in hand. Kagawa cultivates many varieties of carnation, which are highly valued throughout Japan for their excellent quality and long-lasting freshness. The word “carnation” actually includes many different varieties, which can be distinguished by the number of petals, plant height, or quantity and size of blooms. In Kagawa, cultivation of carnations began in the early 1930s. Now, the majority of carnations are grown in greenhouses or similar facilities.
The “Mini Tiara Series”, developed by the Kagawa Prefectural Agricultural Experiment Station, is related to the “Nadeshiko” variety. As its name suggests, the shape of its flower resembles a small crown. “Mini Tiara Series” comes in many color variations, and can easily be arranged with other flowers. Often used for wedding ceremonies and flower arrangements, it also makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
