Asparagus rigidulus / Oobasugikazura オオバスギカズラ

Asparagus rigidulus is a perennial herb, 50-100cm in height, growing in sandy soil or on rocks in seacoasts, stem's lower parts get lignified, and upper legs have an inclination for vines. Two to six gathering together, cladodes, 1-2cm in length, emerge from axils in a curved linear shape, tips pointed. Flowers, 1-3 in number, put themselves on short peduncles, one or so millimeters long, that have come from axils. The flowers are dioecious; corollas are light yellow, about 2-3mm in length, in a bell shape. Sap fruit, about 3mm-across, matures in vermilion. Bloom time: May-June.
