Tsutsuji means azalea. "Iwane tsutsuji" is a popular wagashi motif for early summer, which meaning "wild azalea on rocks in mountains."
Sorry, I don't have a pic of this flower to combine with the wagashi photo above. If you want to see what the flower looks like, click here.
(I had taken this wagashi photo at the end of April ;)
Sorry I forgot which wagashi shop it was from...)
