Green Fluff


I can't quite figure out what this plant is...but they are growing down this path. Most of them are pretty round and it looks like many green balls are laying around.

If you look closely, it's actually made up of very thin grass-like leaves.

I wonder if this could be コキア (Kochia scoparia).

Like you say, they do look fluffy. Are they soft to the touch? I wish the hard chair I am sitting in right now was soft and green.

Tall Gary, yup I think you're right! It was pretty soft to the touch. Where do you find this information? It actually says that this plant is edible...but I don't think I'm brave enough to try :-D

Wow, edible. That is surprising. Thanks for telling us. I found that the seeds are a specialty of Akita prefecture known as mountain, land or field caviar; or tonburi in Japanese
