Today and tomorrow, there is held a sales exhibition of Japan Selaginella Association Aichi Chapter (Big deal :-)). I became a member last year. Exhibitions are held around this season and late autumn every year. Selaginella shows new green in spring, and colored leaves in autumn, so these are the best season to show.
Today, the one I wanted to have is this one, "Ryugujo" meaning Ocean Palace. Of course this particular one was for exhibition only and not for sale. I cannot imagine how much it would cost if it is available. I sought sales tables for a small one, but in vain. Too bad!! But, I look forward to finding one that I can buy.
Giving up "Ryugujo" without anything to do, I bought several that are not similar to ones that I already have.
"Koho" meaning bright phenix. I like randomly growing leaves.
"Kazan", volcano, attracted me by the whitish leaves.
"Tokiwanohikari" is well known celebrity. There scarcely any ones that have course leaves like this.
"Sangokaku", Coral Palace, has coral like leaves as "Taiheiraky" I bought a few weeks ago. The color is pale, and I heard it is the best time for this. As there was a big one exhibited that looked real nice, I added to my shopping bag lastly.
"Kibotan", Yellow Peony, has yellow ~ Lime bright color as the name shows.
