Hiroshima, Japan: Yuso Takesawa's newly sprouted Chinese Parasol Tree 新しい被爆青桐二世誕生


"Hi, Mr Sunairi. Are you in NY now? It sounds like it is really hot there. I bought some seeds of Hibaku Chinese Parasol Tree at Hiroshima Peace memorial Museum for 30 cents for 5 seeds and now I am growing them. I planted 5 seeds altogether, then three of them sprouted. The other Parasol seedling is at Cetra, my friend's place. Hope you are well."
