Orychophragmus violaceus

I often see this flower in the street and vacant lot.
Their color is so beautiful, especially when they bloom in clusters.
It has Japanese common name "flower radish".
I heard that the leaf is edible.
But I'll never eat them, because I have only several stocks in my small container.
I'll enjoy seeing them, and I'll draw if I have time.
