Purple ? Even though these little flowers are white ? The name of this plant is むらさき MURASAKI, literary purple. The roots of this plant can be source of purple dyes. The process is very time-consuming and it has been valuable. Purple has been a noble color since ancient time in Japan.

hmm, looks like the sharpest focus is on the first row of leaves when it would be better on the center of the blossoms
