[[caption-width-right:312:Arikawa (left) and Misaki (right).]]

A BoysLove manga created by Takarai Rihito (artist of ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Manga/SevenDays Seven Days]]'' and ''The Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor''), serialized in Craft magazine. In 2011 it was licensed by DMG under the name Only The Flower Knows.

Arikawa has an unexpected encounter with a student from his university, Misaki; he gives him a hand when he trips, carrying a bunch of potted plants. Shortly afterwards, he bumps into him again at the train station, and accidentally picks up his necklace, which seems to have sentimental value... Then he starts having recurring [[HomoeroticDream romantic]] [[DreamSequence dreams]] about him, although he doesn't actually remember him, since he didn't have [[BlindWithoutEm his glasses on at the time]].

The two end up working together doing agricultural research in the labs, under Professor Tsujimura, and gradually become friends. There's potential for more, but there are also some obstacles to romance (namely the fact Arikawa already has a girlfriend; the fact Misaki alternates between acting shy and cold/distant towards Arikawa; and a mysterious man who won't stop calling Misaki's phone, and seems to have some sort of history with him...).

!!Provides Examples Of:

* [[TheBigDamnKiss Big Damn Kiss]]: Full-page and lovingly-drawn in Chapter 4. In a ''field of flowers''.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlindWithoutEm: Arikawa, hence why he doesn't recognize Misaki after encountering him outside and at the train station. His vision is a blur.
* BoysLove
* CannotSpitItOut: Both boys about their feelings for each-other, [[spoiler:but only up until Chapter 9]].
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Misaki, who also loses his grandfather - which is what allows for his relationship with Kawabata, spurring a lot of the story.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Kawabata acts this way towards Misaki (over both Arikawa, and all his university acquaintances, apparently). [[AxCrazy As far as the trope goes]], though, he's a pretty tame example...
* CryCute: Misaki, whose tears over his grandfather's death prompt Kawabata to kiss him. Arikawa, too, thinks about how his teary face is adorable.
* [[CuteClumsyGirl Cute Clumsy Boy]]: Misaki, a rare male example.
* DreamSequence: Arikawa's dreams about Misaki, in which he's "always lovingly touching and kissing" him.
** HomoeroticDream
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Misaki. In addition to Arikawa and Kawabata, there's a rumor around the university that he catches men's attention with his feminine looks, and was sexually harassed by a male upperclassman.
* FlowerMotifs: Obviously, given the title. There's talk about botany and floriography, flower imagery throughout the manga and in a lot of the Chapter pictures, Misaki's flower necklace...
* {{Gayngst}}: Misaki frequently has this, wondering why he was born a man, since he can't seem to stop himself from falling for other men (men with girlfriends, too, to add insult to injury). [[spoiler:Kawabata, surprisingly, seems to have this too, as it's implied that he only got a girlfriend because that's what society expects of him. In Chapter 11 he cancels their wedding preparations, however, saying he can "think for himself" now.]]
* ItWasAGift: Misaki's flower necklace, from Kawabata, to remind him that he isn't alone.
* {{Jerkass}} / BespectacledBastardBoyfriend: Kawabata, [[spoiler:although Chapter 11 attempts to humanize him some.]]
* LoveConfession: [[spoiler:Arikawa to Misaki in Chapter 9, prompting a RelationshipUpgrade.]]
* LoveTriangle: Subverted a couple of times. Arikawa starts out the story with a girlfriend, and kisses Misaki while they're still together, but they break up before it can go much further than that (and he only half-consciously kissed him, anyway). Then Kawabata enters the picture, who Arikawa assumes is Misaki's lover, but Misaki turns out to have moved on from him already.
* LuminescentBlush / CrushBlush: Misaki, very frequently.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Subverted. Misaki moves in with his grandfather after his parents die in an accident, but then ''he'' dies, too, leaving him solely in [[SexyMentor Kawabata]]'s care...
* RedOniBlueOni: Arikawa is extroverted, cheerful and completely open about his feelings (to the point where it creeps people out). Misaki is introverted, quiet and an enigma to his classmates.
* SexyMentor: Kawabata to Misaki.
* ShipTease
* ShrinkingViolet: Misaki increasingly comes across this way, as he seems less cold and distant and more shy (and is also quiet and seemingly friendless). From Chapter 8 onwards he's shown to be more insecure.
* {{Tsundere}}: Misaki initially comes across this way, since he's cold and suspicious towards Arikawa after he embarrasses him in public (by talking loudly about how much he loves Misaki ''in his dreams!''), but gradually warms up to him over time, and gets [[CrushBlush easily flustered]] in his presence.
* {{Uke}} / {{Seme}}: Misaki/Arikawa and Misaki/Kawabata both fit the archetypes, though not rigidly.
* VisibleSigh: Used both when the characters actually sigh, and to show heavy breathing - particularly during, uh, [[CoitusEnsues Chapter 10]]...
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Subverted. The main characters' relationship is teased at, but not dragged out. [[spoiler:They do, in Chapter 9]].
