Autumn Flowers in Kamakura ( 2 )

At Hokaiji Temple, I saw a unique flower called ' HanaTora-no-o ' in Japanese. It literally means ' Tiger's tail flower '! It's a humorous name!  

Japanese beautiful nature and interesting culture !

Actually, I think, it looks like a cat's tail. How do you like it? It has lovely pink flowers, but they say this flower has a strong life force like a tiger. Originally, it was native to North America and introduced to Japan around 100 yeares ago.
