Ainsliaea apiculata is a small perennial herb inhabiting the shade of a tree in mountainous regions, with stems growing to 10-20cm in height. The leaves, 5-11, alternately put themselves together at the stem's lower portions, in a cordate shape, with long petioles, 1-3cm long, generally in a pentagonal shape or shallowly cleft in fives. Flower heads comprise three florets, and corollas are white, often resulting in cleistogamous flowers. Bloom time: September-October.
