Newly Added Plants in 2019


This is what was described in 2018 as a natural hybrid between Fritirallia ayakoana and Fritirallia amabilis. A couple of habitats are known.

 Fritirallia x matsumoi / Iwamikobaimo




I found just a single plant of this on a sedimentary rock made up mainly of calcium carbonate. This forma of Viola ovata-oblonga is characterized by striking hair on each lateral petal.

Viola obato-oblonga f. pubescens / Kenagabatachitsubosumire   




We hardly ever see a double-flowered Anemone nikoensis, but I came across one among the population of its parent species.

 Anemone nikoensis f. plena / Yaeichirinsou





I saw this species mingling among the other kind of plants in a wet and dark place, the flowers being beautiful ivory-white ,and leave with lots of hairs on the veins.

 Viola maximowicziana / Komiyamasumire





A kind of rare creeping plant rarely found. I saw this having been being fallen down over a country road, along with its supporter, a kind of bamboo already dead.

Anodendron affine / Sakakikazura





  A white variety of Mazus miquelii. I saw one mingling among the purple species for the first time. 

 Mazus miquelii f. albiflorus / Shirobanasagisou





This apparently is the white form of Asarum caulesces, but the first moment I saw it conveyed me another idea.

 Asarum_caulescens_f. / Shirobanafutabaaoi




This species is very common in this part of the country, but the white form is seldom seen.

Wisteria brachybotrys f. alba / Shirobanayamafuji

This is a shrub that was found on hilltop in a limestone district, being seen rooting in cracks of rocks.
Zabelia_integrifolia / Iwatsukubaneutsugi      
 Very much looks like Stellaria sessiliflora, but this species have not petioles. I saw it in full bloom in a limestone district.
Stellaria uchiyamana / Yamahakobe      
This is a new species described in 2014. I saw one on a semi-shady slope on a low hill, it being found forming a population of around a dozen.
 Salvia akiensis / Terihanatsunotamurasou
