Arabis hirsuta / Yamahatazao ヤマハタザオ

Arabis hirsuta, 30-80cm in diameter, grows in grasslands or forest edges in fields and mountains, with stems having stellate and monotrichous hairs. Radical leaves are rosette-like, and on-stem ones embrace the branches; both have undulate serrations on the margins. Stem apexes give racemes with white flowers. Fruit (silique), 2-6cm in length, set themselves parallel to gynophores (called peduncles when flowering). Bloom time: May-July.
