Asarum caurescens is a petal-lacking
perennial that inhabits forests in mountainous regions. The 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 of them. This species set
single-purple-brown, 1.5cm-in-diameter flowers at the bases, and;
the sepals bend back outside at the halfway point to adhere to their
own lower portions. Bloom time: March-May.
