Japan is famous for its various species of flowers blooming across the whole country. If you are visiting Japan, we would highly recommend you to visit the breath-taking Hitachi Seaside Park, where millions of baby blue Nemophila flowers are blooming at the end of the spring. People often say that Park is a flower paradise.
These flowers are also known as blue baby eyes, because of their eye-look appearance and soft blue color.
The Hitachi Seaside Park is best to visit from late April until mid-May when 4.5 million of seasonal flowers are blooming. The Nemophila Harmony, a flower festival, takes place at that time.
If you climb on the Miharashi hills, which are also covered with baby blue Nemophila flowers, you can have a panoramic view of the whole Hitachi Park. Standing at the top of the hills, you will be able to observe the field of baby blue flowers the blue ocean, and the blue sky of Japan.
However, unfortunately, due to the spread of the pandemic, on the 4th of April 2020, the Hitachi Seaside Park was closed until further notice.
If you love flowers, you can grow the baby blue Nemophila in your garden. The annual Nemophila flowers should be planted in the early spring and they bloom throughout the summer.
During germination, i.e. the first 6 weeks, they need a lot of water. Also, it is better to cultivate them in partial shade, not under direct sunlight.
