Asyneuma japonicum / Shideshajin シデシャジン

 
Asyneuma japonicum, a perennial herb growing to 0.5-1m in height, inhabits forests in mountainous regions. Alternately arranged, leaves are small without petioles on the upper parts, with larger leaves with short petioles on the lower legs, in an oval or long oblong shape, tips pointed, and uneven serrations on margins. Flowers set themselves in racemes borne on stem tips and axils on upper parts; peduncles are short, 1-3mm long. Corollas are blue-purple, deeply divided in five from bases, and the lobes, linear, 1-2mm long, open flat and bend backward; thus, the flowers are seemingly schizopetalous. Bloom time: June-August.
