Centella asiatica / Tsubokusa ツボクサ

Centella asiatica is a perennial found on roadsides, gardens, or forests. Stems crawl on the ground and propagate themselves by taking roots at nodes. Leaves measure 2.5-5cm in diameter, kidney-like circular, with bases reniform, margins with shallow serrations, and petioles with vaginate floors. Nodes emerge 1-2 inflorescences in which small flowers bloom in clusters. Bloom time: May-August.
