Asarum caurescens / Futabaaoi フタバアオイ

 

Asarum caurescens is a petal-lacking perennial that inhabits forests in mountainous regions. Stems grow crawling on the ground to set a pair of opposite phyllotaxis leaves at the terminal. The leaves are oval heart-shaped, 4-8cm long, with short white hairs on both sides. This species set single-purple-brown, 1.5cm-in-diameter flowers at the bases; the sepals bend backward outside at the halfway point to adhere to their lower portions. Bloom time: March-May.
