Blooms early to late. Leaves dark green, broad-ovate, apices blunt acute, mar­gins serrulate. Originated in the Chūbu area, Japan. In early spring, February 6th, during "Set­subun Festival", to welcome the first day of spring and send out the last day of winter, children scatter beans to scare away the devil of winter and cry "Fuki-wa-uchi" and "Oni-wa-uchi", meaning "Come in lucky" & "Go away devils".
