Boehmeria platanifolia / Meyabumao メヤブマオ

Boehmeria platanifolia is an approximately one-meter-tall perennial in forest fields and mountains. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, 10-20cm long, orbicular-ovate, thin, and with many tips shallowly cleft in three. Leaf bases cut themselves abruptly as if cut off, and margins have coarse serrations and leaf surfaces with short hairs. Female inflorescences are more slender than B. japonica var. longispica, and their flowers set themselves somewhat apart. Bloom time: August-October.
