チダケサシ

駐車場の近くにチダケサシが咲いていました。夏に、草原や湿地に見られる花です。和名は、長い茎に、同じく夏に見られるチチタケと呼ばれるキノコを刺して持ち帰ったことに由来すると言われています。


"チダケサシ(chidakesashi)" is in bloom near the parking lot. They live in grasslands and wetlands and bloom in summer. The name "chidakesashi" comes from "chichitake"(a kind of mashrooms) and "sashi"(to skewer). It is said that people in the past pick up "chichitake" mashrooms and skewered them with a long stem of "chidakesashi" to bring them home. That is why this flower is called “chidakesashi”.
