Carpesium glossophyllum / Sajigankubisou サジガンクビソウ

Carpesium glossophyllum is a 25-50cm-tall perennial herb found in the shade of a tree, where it is somewhat dry in mountainous or hilly regions, with divaricate hairs on stems and leaves. Radical leaves, still existing in flowering time, are 9-15cm long, 2.5-3.5cm wide, in the shape of an oblanceolate, with few serrations on margins. On-stem leaves are small and sparse and become linear-like lanceolate. Branch tips set single green-white flower heads facing downward. The flower heads measure 0.8-1.5cm in diameter, with bracts at the bases. Bloom time: August-October.
