Calystegia soldanella / Hamahirugao ハマヒルガオ

 
A typical beach plant, Calystegia soldanella, is a perennial vine herb in sandy soil on the seashore and propagates itself by extending its white rhizomes long underground. Stems crawl on the ground and wind themselves around if there is something about it, expanding this way. Leaves are alternate, 2-4cm long, 3-5cm wide, in the shape of a kidney-circular, with deep, thick, and glossy bases. Axils emerge peduncles and set light red flowers at the tips. Bloom time: May-June.
