Yamato nadeshiko (やまとなでしこ or 大和撫子?) is a Japanese term meaning the "personification of an idealized Japanese woman", or "the epitome of pure, feminine beauty". It is a floral metaphor, combining the words Yamato, an ancient name for Japan, and nadeshiko, a delicate frilled pink carnation called Dianthus superbus, whose kanji translate into English as "caressable child" (or "wide-eyed barley").  The term "Yamato nadeshiko" is often used referring to a girl or shy young woman. (Wikipedia)
