Okina means old man in Japanese.
I took this photo in the YUDO , farmer's house in Tokyo.
They had a small event for commemoration of Kenji Miyazawa, a poet.
Okinagusa is the titile of his famous poem from "Haru to Shura".

After flower blooming,it become seeds having white hair.
So they call it Okina ( old man ) flower.
By the way, In Korea they call this flower Harumi Kott.
Harumi means old woman in Korean language.
Kott means flower.

||＞I know grandmother is Harumoni in Korean.|
Haru means Far,and Omoni means Mother,
So Harumoni is grandmather.
By the way, In the Korean slang, Harumoni become Harumi.
It's nuance is as like as Japanese Baasan or Babaa.
