During mid April the city of Saitama host a number of Japanese primrose “Sakurasou” festivals. Sakurasou or Sakuraso is written in Japanese with the kanji for cherry blossoms and for grass i.e. cherry blossom grass. However, Japanese primrose is the name used in English for this flower. The flower doesn’t look that much like cherry blossoms nor does the shibazakura, or moss phlox as its called in English, but both are classified as coming under the  “sakura” umbrella.
