Centaurium tenuiflorum / Hanahamasenburi ハナハマセンブリ

 
Centaurium tenuiflorum, an originating-in-Mediterranean Coast annual or biennial, grows wild in places like vacant lots as tall as 20 centimeters. On-stem leaves are hollow, with four ridges, and branch well at upper parts. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, in the shape of an obovate, with entire margins. Radical leaves do not form rosettes. About 8mm in diameter, many pink flowers set themselves on stem tips; corollas divide themselves in five, and calyx lobes are about half as long as floral tubes. Bloom time: June-July.
