〜Drive away evils 柊南天〜

Apparently, mahonia trees’ flower language is “violent emotion”.  They are often planted in the direction of “kimon”, 鬼門 or literally “ogres gate” of the houses, maybe because their leaves are ragged they are expected to ward off evil spirits.  The photo shows the one with yellow little flowers planted in my back garden and in the direction of 裏鬼門 or “back ogres gate” which is diagonally opposite corner from the front one.

柊南天の花言葉は「激情」だそうです。葉の縁がギザギザだからか、家の鬼門の方角に植えることが多いようです。写真はうちの裏庭の裏鬼門の可愛い黄色いお花をつけた柊南天です。
