Fish and plants in Japan have a long history of being loved by the Japanese and have changed a lot over time due to selective breeding. I think there is still a lot of work left to sort some of these things out or make the research done in Japan known to the outside world.

I agree with it. :)
And I noticed some my misunderstanding. It's like Yorkshire Terrier / Scottish Terrier, all domestic dogs(Canis familiaris).
I think "don't need varieties" in this case.
All "Yama Tsutsuji" and "Kirishima Tsutsuji" and "Sato Tsutsuji" is Rhododendron obtusum. :)
