Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation. A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again. It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥
Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .
they don't sell the seed of this flower but , i dig a hole in the ground and got some for my little yard . when i asked the lady in the flower shop if she have it , she was so mad that i was looking for them to grow . like really upset .
hmm~ I heard manga and anime of Jigoku Shoujo are really different from each other the manga is like lots of stories of people calling Enma Ai, as if it was a collection of one-shots related to Enma Ai together :3
depends on your timing . mostly yes ,but when they are half-life ,like in the beginning of the second week ,they get this color . and then they get almost purple and dry . there are also a yellow version of them .
