Calystegia japonica / Hirugao ヒルガオ

Calystegia hederacea is a perennial vine commonly found in grasslands or roadsides, propagating itself by extending its white underground stems, the vine growing and winding itself around something else. The alternate leaves are hastate, 3-7cm long, the basal parts overhanging sideways, looking like a pair of ears. Flowers singly come on 2-5cm stalks born on leaf axils. Bloom time: June-August.
