Anemone flaccida / Nirinsou ニリンソウ

Anemone flaccida is a perennial herb of 15-25cm in height, inhabiting colonies in damp places in fields and mountains. Radical leaves dissect themselves into three lobes, afresh deeply cleft in two segments. On-stem leaves are in whorls of three petiole-less leaves. Stem tops set 2 or 3 flower stalks, each with approximately 2cm-in-diameter two white flowers on their tops. This species, lacking petals, has 5-7 petal-like sepals; the bottom side of the sepals tinge red. Bloom time: April-May.
