It is the origin of a part of the flower name that the leaf shape is like a chrysanthemum-like palm shape. In autumn, flower stems of about 1 m are drawn from the root of the root leaves and worshiped, and a head flower is attached. From the tip of the head flower covered with spiniform total bracts in green (after, → change to reddish purple) thistle which is a lot of pale red purple color or white tubular flowers like that bloom.
