What is Sakura oguruma
Sakura oguruma (scientific name: Inura x yosezatoana) is a perennial herb in the family Asteraceae, genus Inula. It is a natural hybrid between Oguruma (scientific name: I. britannica subsp. japonica) and Hosoba Oguruma (scientific name: Inula linariifolia). It grows wild on footpaths and wetlands north of the Kanto region. The Japanese botanist, Dr. Tomitaro Makino found it in Sakura City, Chiba Prefecture and named it, but it is now considered to be the same species as the Edautiogrma (scientific name: Inula Britannica L. subsp. japonica var. ramose).
